Moved into new to us house on May 2nd. Finally got settled in and the pollen surrounding the Lake of the Ozarks appears to be calming itself. Opened the pool today and it was as green and nasty as I'd imagined, complete with 3 toads, 2 lizards, and a smelly dead squirrel (thanks for not patching the hole(s) in the loop loc cover to the previous owner).
Got it filled up to proper level, pump and filter appear to be working ok. Can't seem to get lighting to work (fiber optic).
Looking forward to getting it up and running. Trying to keep a positive attitude as a pool is about the last thing I wanted/needed...it's a side effect of buying this house...hoping it turns out for the best. Still mulling fence options as we have a 4 and 2 year old. Local pool co. doesn't seem to have any interest in helping us put in a Baby-Loc. Any suggestions?
