    forgot to introduce myself

    Hello from NW NJ. DW and I love relaxing in the back yard. 4 years ago we bought a 36" tall 16' wide Intex pool. That did us for 3 years but I got tired of breaking the pool down, dragging it into the basement in the fall then back out in the spring. We jumped to a 21' wide 54" inch tall above ground beauty.

    Due to the weather the installer took a little longer then originally hoped so we had to make due for a couple of hot weekends.

    Here's a link to the install:
    21' AG (~11,000 gallons)
    Hayward S180T sand filter (35 gpm)
    Hayward Power-Flow SP1510 pump

    Welcome aboard fireman00!

    I know you mentioned your location in your post. Going forward...
    Please add to your profile the state and nearest city in which you live. Your climate is important to the advice you receive. By doing this, it will appear in all your posts without you having to enter it each time.

    Here's how to do this: Adding location to your profile and pool info to your signature.

    If you don't already have one, you will need a good test kit to properly manage your pool. Here is a comparison of the recommended Test Kits
    Gold Supporter, TFP Lifetime Supporter, 26,680 gal Plaster IGP 3.5 - 10' depth / Attached Waterfall Spa, Manually Chlorinated, Triton Sand Filter, 1.5 HP * 1.1 SF = 1.65 SFHP 1-speed Pentair WhisperFlo WF-26 Pump, 400K BTU NG Teledyne Laars Series One Heater, Polaris 360, Test Kit Comparison, Chlorine/CYA Chart, SLAMing Your Pool, OCLT
    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
