    Had a great swim season! THANK YOU TFP!!!!

    Well, not be anti-social or anything, but we had kind of a wacky summer.. so haven't been here in forever...when we finally got re-oriented and it stopped raining, I was in the pool every day I could. Thanks everyone!!! tried to take some pix and hopefully will get them posted later. sad news is, finally had to take it down (((( last weekend..... too bad as it was helping w back problems.

    I had good luck with the piddly cartridge filter... and yes, with a good filter, and running 12-18 hrs a day, and staying on top of the TC/FC and CYA, and proper test kit, you can make it work!!! even tho' most say you can't.... and even so....

    I want to buy the same pool again and need advice on a sand filter, I just think it would be easier upkeep than washing filters everyday, which I did. So will post under that section...

    just want to say thanks again for a great swim season!!!! all you lucky dogs with a year-round pool, enjoy!!!!

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
