    New Here From Tinley Park, Illinois

    Hi Everyone. I'm new here from Tinley Park, Illinois. We purchased our pool about 3 1/2 years ago. We've been using the BBB method and it works great. I hope to get a chance to chat with everyone in the near future!

    We have a 24 feet round Artesian above-ground pool. It's 54" deep. We use a DE Filter; it's a Hayward 1.5 HP; model EC45.
