    Hello All at TFP!

    Hello everyone at TFP. Looks like lots of helpful information is here offered by some nice folks.

    Last summer was my first with a real pool (moved to a home with 24' Round AG Pool). Installed a new liner (pool guy actually) and coupled with a new filter and pump, had a very enjoyable season.

    I bought a winter micro mesh cover for the closing and will be opening the pool soon. Will be posting for some help on getting the mesh cover off "cleanly" (that's for another thread).

    Take care and enjoy your pool!
    24' Round AGP 42" Walls Approx 11,000 gallons (15 plus years old - came with house in 2011)
    Waterway ClearWater II 67 GPM DE Filter w' 1.0 HP Hi-Flo Pump (2012)
    15' Wood Deck (as old as pool) || Swirl Pattern Vinyl Liner (2012)
    Intermatic T101 24 hr Mechanical Timer || Micro Mesh Winter Cover
    Kept Clean with Liquid Chlorine (Sodium Hypo 12.5%), Algaecide (from time to time), 3" Jumbo Slo-Poke Tabs (Tri-Chlor)
    Aquacheck Select 7-Way Test Strips with Color Chart (Okay okay, I'll get a real test kit - next year.)

    Thanks again for the welcomes. When I get the pool opened I will get that pool pic.
