Hello everyone, I am new here, this is my first post, from Athens, Greece.
I read somewhere (or maybe saw it on Youtube) about someone who used some old magazines to level his pool, thought of doing the same with old newspapers, catalogs etc. I kept these for many years, finally I found some use for them, here are pics.
Pool looks level enough for the moment, however this kind of pool can be damaged easily, a cat can rip the air ring, some mouse can eat the liner, ants can eat the liner if they feel like it, lots of things can go wrong here, so I have no idea how long this thing will be up.
I have some fish in there too, also use a mature biological filter from another small pool I had in the yard, no chlorine of course. I will have to share the pool with the fish if it gets too hot, already done that, so far everything OK.
The pool is not full, intentionally, I wanted to make sure it would make it through the first night, will fill more if no cats appear for a couple days.
The included filter model 604 makes a little noise so I insulated (sort of) with some old Styrofoam I had lying around in the yard for some years, it did cut the noise a bit. I have to run the pump 24/7 because of the biological filter, I expected such a cheap pump to make some noise but it turned out this one is noisier than I predicted or maybe I was used to very quiet pumps until now.
The whole setup is in a temporary state yet, if all goes well I will fix that return line in a better way, maybe fix it to the wall, I have to think about that, the wall is in perfect condition and I do not want to damage it (joking).
This is all from me, I really enjoy this forum, very valuable information in here, thanks everyone for that.
