    pool is open, but...

    Pool is now open, and it was this clear when we opened it before adding chemicals.



    Need to figure out how to clean the edging without washing it all into the pool (open to suggestions).

    The new heat pump is now installed.

    Things are much easier to view if you imbeded the image web address into a IMG tag in the full editor like this:
    {img}www.address.pic.jpg{/img} .... using square brackets instead.

    Note it has to be the address to the picture by itself.

    I just blast that kind of thing with the pressure washer, holding the wand at an angle over the water pointing back. Some will get in the pool. but nothing the filter can't handle.

    ^ what he said.

    If your pool looked that good when you opened it, you are doing something (actually many things) right!

    Thank you jblizzle.

    BoDarville, I am really hoping it wasn't just beginners luck!
