    Thanks TFP!

    Since I was lucky enough to find this site BEFORE I had the pool installed, I have had the chance to become acquainted and educated about how to properly maintain our new pool. I'm about ready to put the salt in (waiting for salt test kit) and crank up the SWCG (water temp now about 60), and hopefully be ready to post a picture for the slideshow soon.

    A brief note on water clarity using the BBB method - I can see the bottom drain cover clearly (it has the same pebble treatment as the pool) from my back patio from 80' away. That's pretty da^$@ clear...

    Thanks again to all.

    Best,

    Congratulations! Make sure you wait 24-48hours after the salt is in and circulating before you turn on the salt system. Don't want to get a surge in the cell due to high or low salt.

    Very nice post. This community thrives as the premier pool forum on the net because all here are willing to share the experiences and knowledge they have gained.
