I've finalized the order, so tomorrow I need to call a contractor for the install. Pool season is still at least 16 weeks away and I can hardly wait. I'm glad I will have some time to get used to maintaining the water. If the pool is installed after the chance for freezing, but before it's too warm to actually swim, should I cover it and keep it winterized until May?
I think I will use the BBB method of sanitation. I used quite a bit of chlorine and PH up and stabilizer on my 5K gallon intex last year and I still ended up with kind of milky water by the end of the season.
