    Hello from Western NY

    Hi all!

    I have been reading these forums since I bought my new house a month and a half ago. The pool is a mess, but I managed to get the cover off with all off the leaves after a few days, only to find the lovely brown/black water below!

    Lots of work ahead and I am sure I will have a ton of questions! I am not sure when my pool was built, but it was branded by Refinite, which appears to have been bought by Paddock in the 50s!
