    After much deliberation: It's an Intex Ultra Frame

    We'd been looking and keeping our eyes open for a while. Mrs Kid wanted an oval to swim laps in, but I think she didn't like the prices on them. That, and we really don't have room for a good size oval. I was in Wally World and they had a round 18' x 48" on the shelf. I figured since I was there, it was there, and we had the money all at one time, it must be a sign. They helped me load it up and That's when it dawned on me- I didn't have room to store it... yet. I opened the garage, shuffled the buggy around a bit, and made JUUUUST enough room to squeeze it in there. I'll be moving things around Saturday, I'm sure.

    Maybe the weather will stay nice and warm and we can get it set up & open before too long (I hope). Looks like I'll be spending some quality time in pool school soon. The intent is to go BBB & not look back. I don't recall ever reading of anybody regretting that decision. It makes perfect sense to me.

    Just make sure you get it level! But get rid of those test strips, they are worse than anything. Get the TF-50 from tftestkits.net and get your water balanced. Maybe next year you can get the oval that the Mrs would like. Keep your eyes and ears open. Craigslist is a great way to go. You can alway sell the 18'.

    They were actually a big step up from the phenol red/OTO drops I'd been using. I just checked, there's only 4 left (I'd been using them in the hot tub) and they're from last year. I'm planning to get a good test kit. I'm done being pool stored & walmarted.

    edit: deleted test strips from signature
