    Gruss Gott Frank!

    Willkommen to TFP. I enjoy the 45th parallel with a marine climate as well. My Deutsch stinks, but a few words stuck :~}

    Your pool and yard is super cute! Got blue kids too?
    Where kids swim in 54 degree water, turn blue, and giggle happily cuz they got a POOL!
    Year 3 BBB -15' x 48" Intex Metal Frame - Was using (2) 1000gph Intex cartridge filters (see Full time pumping Intex). 2012, converted to 1600gph and sand filter+SWG = Sand filter love affair!
    Don't waste time and energy looking for a better value on test kits, the TF100 is the best deal around. I did the looking and spent the extra money, but you don't have to make the same mistake. Just go here: TFTestkits. I use Pool Calculator for min/max, and shocking chlorine levels.

    Hi Frank,

    What's your weather like there? I'm curious. Water temp?

    ...I wish my grass was as green as yours.

    Re: New one from rainy germany

    LOL, yes, my grass is green, and it have to be cut twice a week
    We have a very warm april, but now its about 20C (68F) in the air and RAIN every day
    My water has the same temperature, but when the sun came out it goes up to 30C (86F) in two days, my solar heating is very important here, without it it isn´t possible to get the water warm.
    I hope it will be better in the next weeks.

    zu... yeah. that's what I was racking my brain for. 24 years post any learning auf Deutsch and I can't even remember the word for "to".

    Sigh...

    Carry on with y'all's twin talk :~}

    Don't feel bad. It could also have been "auf" (on) or "bei" (by). The preposition depends on the noun the verb links to.

    I said that must have been a lot of work to install and did he do it all by himself and he said yes, but the neighbors helped with the concrete and then I suggested that the neighbors get to come over and use the pool.

    Oh, and he's located north of Dortmund (Dortmunder beer, yay!) near the Dutch border. Kind of.

    A hard working man, that's for sure. Did you look at the install pics on his Website? Talk about precision and attention to detail!

    Frank, welcome to TFP!!

    'Ich sprechen kein' Deutsch (that's the best I can do )

    It's always great to have a little international 'flavor' here

    And, like Mats (HenryPorter), you have the attention to detail and patience to do the job correctly

    And yes, it was much work to do it, but i have read about the danger by a groung out of level. And the pol is not far away from the house, so i don´t want a tsunami in our living room

    In the last 5 Jears i was a member of the S10 Forum in USA, because i owned a ´91 S10 PU , that i have sold this jear.
    In that forum i have exercised writing in english.

    That was a lot of work for one man. I'm impressed. I especially like the piping - the way everything lines up makes it look like a professional job. It's good to have you on the forum.
