    Finally!!!

    After buying a green swamp shortsale last year, finally moved in and fired the pool guy!
    After multiple partial drainings to get the balance just right, I finally converted it to saltwater.
    Not fancy but, the water looks and feels good!

    It is possible with just 20mule team borax, acid and liquid clorine!

    What do you mean not fancy? I would take it!!! It looks like it is enclosed, is that correct? The screening around it probably helps keeps a lot of debris and bugs out.

    Beautiful pool.

    I think it's quite fancy! And that it is clear and you enjoy it makes it even fancier!

    Thanks everyone. (I should have said compared to lots of pools I see here!)

    ... cant seem to get that blue colored water everyone seems to have in their photos but, its clear. Chemistry right on. Maybe its just the bottom color...

    White plaster can give off very aqua water colors. Just to be sure, have you ever had the metals checked to see if you have any in your water?
