    HI! The pool is here!

    I have been reading, reading, reading! What a wonderful site! I will be sending money as soon as I recover from buying the pool. I will be updating with pics. as soon as I get them off of the camera.

    My next purchase will be a test kit!

    My install will start tomorrow in the morning! EXCITED!

    Since I have well water what do I need to look for? It is great water without any "yuck" in in it. I had it tested when we first moved in. I cannot find the paper that had the results but do remember everyone around here saying we have great/clean water. It sure taste good!

    Sand for the filter-where is the best price for sand? Leslies has 50lbs for $9.99. So I will need 3 bags (150lbs) Is that a good price?

    THANKS for being here! I really think I can do this!

    Welcome to the forum

    I have well water and no issues with it, there are many that do. I would have it tested for iron before using it to fill the pool.
