    Hello from overseas

    Hi all,

    my name is Marcus, 43 years old, from western germany. 4 years ago I started with a 4,57 diameter quick-up pool, last year I changed to a 7000 gallons inground steel-wall pool with sand-filter (50 kg. crushed glas filtration media, grade 1, 0,5-1,0 mm particles), salt-water, no chlorine-generator, chlorine is added manually.

    By chance I found this forum and found out, pools are running different in america than in germany. Unfortunately I've no photo of the entire pool, will be coming soon . The pool is still in winter dormancy, until this weekend, then it will awake.

    Here two photos of the skimmer in sand-filter:

    Nice to be with you, so long

    Marcus
