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!
