    Forum Musician and young pool owner willing to learn!

    Hey guys! I'll keep this short and simple. My name is Blake and I am from Birmingham, AL. I am 20 years old and have always been interested in swimming pools. I've been a pool owner for roughly 2 years now, and sadly a tree fell on our relatively new 24' by 52 pool! We are in the process of getting a replacement built(30' by 54). I know the basics of swimming pool chemistry but by no means am I an expert. I fully recommend and use the BBB method. I am looking forward to learning even more from seasoned pool enthusiasts such as yourselves.

    I'm an Assistant Store Manager at Gamestop, and an aspiring musician. I play the electric guitar and STRIVE to sound the heaviest I can! Metallica is my biggest influence!(That is me in my avatar sporting my Flying V)!

    I've listened to Metallica myself. Great band with a great story !
    JB is a good guy. Probably has forgotten more than I'll ever know about pools. 👍

    You all are good guys(and gals). If it wasn't for this site, I would be emptying my pockets at the nearby pool store.

    Welcome Blake. I'm a music freak too, just more of old Rock, and Blues, but like a lot of guitar work from most Genres.

    Re: Forum Musician and young pool owner willing to learn!

    Heck yeah I'll learn some Buffett! When I come over I would like some spare ribs if you don't mind! About the size of the pool, yes I know it's huge! I'm going to post comparison pictures when they come out and install it next week. I'm going from a 13,500 to an almost 22k pool! I'm nervous guys! Is a second return needed? Also is a pool this size structurally safe? Haha. It's a Asahi brand.

    I think you'll be fine with one return. Yes it will be structurally safe.
    How about some good ole country music ?

    Re: Forum Musician and young pool owner willing to learn!

    Ain't nothing wrong with country. It's what I grew up on. Very emotional music indeed. The reason I strayed toward metal is simple. It's in your face angressive! . Pwr, are Asahi pools decent? That's the type.

    I haven't heard anything negative about them. Have you searched the net for some reviews on them ?
    Yep that's what I grew up on too. Grew up in the mountains of western PA. Messed around with a banjo but that was sometime ago. 😎

    25 mil. Get the thickest liner you can. I always suggest not to skimp on the liner. It's a very important part of the pool IMO. 😎

    Re: Forum Musician and young pool owner willing to learn!

    We upgraded the liner to the boulder swirl, I'm almost positive it's 25. I hope so. This topic freaks me out: http://www.troublefreepool.com/threa...c-Failure-Pics
