    New from SE Michigan


    Been lurking and reading for awhile, decided to join the group. Bought the TF100 kit and tossed some money in the kitty. You

    can't buy this much info anywhere in one place for 30 bucks. Got a wife, 4 and 7 yr old boys and popped a few blow up pools,

    time to graduate. Had pools growing up and installed a few, but with 2 bad knees and 2 bad disks, I'll let someone else install it.

    Getting a 16 x 32 AGP next week. Let the fun begin! Thanks for all of those who help on this site, I'm learning a lot.

    Welcome to TFP!

    How about entertaining us with a photo series of your installation next week, before and after shots. We love pictures!

    That sounds like a great idea. I'll try but they'll be doing it while I'm at work. I may take a day off and get pictures. The first day will be preparing the site. Very slight incline with solid clay under the grass. They need to use a Bobcat to get through it.

    My wife could probably do some pictures but she's Italian and will most likely be cooking a tub of pasta, garlic bread and salad to feed the crew and making sure they have enough water, sunscreen on, music is OK, and on and on........

    Perhaps I'll take two days off to make sure they have time to work

    Thank you for the welcomes. The Mermaid Queen, what do you want on your salad? Can't wait to see the boys get excited when the pool gets here. I remember watching our pool fill up when I was little, it took FOREVER.

    They will probably be on the deck in their suits the minute the truck shows up.

    Sure, if she invites you. If not ,you'll have to come by on your own. How many meatballs?
