    Newbie from Palos Heights, IL

    Found the website today and even managed to find a new Pool person in the process(thanks Frustratedpoolmom for the help) to help get me on track. 24' round above ground about 48" or so deep. Had(and I emphasize HAD, currently laying in the yard disconnected) the pool frog which to me seemed an expensive P.O.S. to operate. trying the BBB method for now and will be getting a test kit asap when funds let me.. Might take the frog to work, I work at a gun range and am curious how it would withstand a few (more info on the pool, sand filter unknown size or make, possibly a hayward pump but will dbl check and update sig when I do)
    24' abg approx 48" deep. Sand filter(unknown brand) possibly hayward pump..details to be corrected later..Sunsetter hot tub approx 7'x7'x40"

    Let us know how that may have other people wanting you to take out their frogs too.
