    Looking good so far!

    Just pulled off the winter cover (our first opening, was installed last May) and besides the water being about 6" lower than when we drained it down last fall and some very white earthworms on the bottom, it's beautifully clear! [attachment=0:h8cu1mrc]20130516_181356_resized.jpg[/attachment:h8cu1mrc]

    How exactly DO earthworms get into an AGP? Can they climb up the walls? Getting pool water topped off tomorrow via pool water delivery...excited to try out my new TF100 and start my BBB adventure!

    That pool looks fantastic, especially after being closed up for a Michigan winter. Great job closing it last year

    Not sure how the earthworms got into an AGP either.

    Thanks guys...I wish I could share the same pics off my gf's inground but her pb put a mesh cover on instead of a solid cover and she's dealing with a mess. Her tf100 is on it's way so I'm taking mine over to check her levels for her today...she's also going the BBB route and has gone from dark green to cloudy blue in 4 days, it's getting there!

    I think birds will drop earthworms sometimes and they land in the pool.

    My pool had a solid cover on it....I Googled it and seems they can climb up the sides of pools. Lol
