    Hazy to clear

    Should have taken a pic of the pool while it was still a little hazy, but didn't think of it.

    Just bought a house in March, and the pool was a victim of pool-store for it's 10+ year life. The CYA was off the charts upon opening, and the water was a bit hazy...not terrible, though.

    But, with the fantastic help from TFP, we are crystal clear and ready to go! (Now I just need the temps to get up there a bit...it is still way too chilly up north...brr...but the kids were so excited to have a pool, they went swimming this weekend, anyway!)

    I feel like there needs to be a big "NO DIVING" sign on the upper deck.

    Hah hah...that's just one level above. I took the pic from my bedroom balcony which a floor higher up than that. I've already expressed the "no diving off the decks" rule...but with four kids...a sign might be in order.

    My first though when I saw the picture was "Cannonball!"

    Carpet strip on the railing will deter jumpers better than a sign.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    The grill is on that deck. We had a cook out yesterday, and I was placing some of the serving plates along the rail. The countdown is on for when the first burger does an accidental cannonball.
