    My Pool is Up

    It finally happened today. It was supposed to be sunny...but it was mostly cloudy and some thunderstorms nearby..only got as far as filling to about two inches...we are too tired. Everything aches! Tomorrow fill up some more and cut out the skimmer and return.. set up the equipment, ect. My yard is tore up...but I'm happy.

    Will post more pics later...im incoherent at this point.

    Re: My Pool is Up

    Thank you all for the kind words..didn't get to do much today...filled it to about a foot..and I noticed a small hole in my liner..near the cove. Ran to the pool store got a patch kit..fixed. I promised my daughter I would show up at her bookfair at school..there went a couple of hours. It"s storming again right now.. tomorrow will be more productive!

    This is what we have. They are pricey new, I found it used on Craigslist for $500.

    Re: My Pool is Up

    I finally broke and got steps for the pool last month.. also we did the landscaping around the pool last Friday.. The TFP method has worked like a charm..still sparkly like the first week! It has been a weird summer around here...but we use it every chance we get..
