Thread: Our stay-cation spot.

  1. Back To Top    #1

    Our stay-cation spot.

    I'm finally posting a photo of the pool. The grass is a bit long, it'll be cut tomorrow. But I thought I'd show it off anyway.
    Many thanks to this forum and the BBB method and the Pool Calculator. Pool maintenance could not have been any easier! It really was a trouble-free season!
    And without further ado,
    Here's our pride and joy (next to the children of course ):

    Beautiful! Your water looks perfect! You can probably see a dime on the pool floor even from the distance of the picture!

    We are in SE Pennsylvania, right outside of Philadelphia. The liner is Stone Braid/Prism. Thanks guys! We love it. The kids approve!

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
