    Lurker intoducing myself

    Hi there, I am Susan...I have lurked on this page for many years when I began my pool adventures with a little Intex 12x30 frame pool. We just finished installing our first permanent pool (hubby is a contractor) on the top tier of our yard...Let me tell you, carrying 3 tons of sand in buckets up steps was lots of fun! We are limited in pool size because of power lines and property line rules, and it is far from perfect---bottom a bit lumpy and some tiny wrinkles, but I still love my little pool! I plan on upgrading the filter/pump next season and we installed a better liner than what came with the package. Still working on electrical (running pump with extension cord for the temporary) and deck/landscaping to follow because hubby is swamped with work right now...Here is a pic of my sparkly water from everything that I learned here---image.jpg

    Thanks ...i was able to always keep my Intex water perfect with TFP methods, and the past two weeks have been a breeze with the bigger pool. I am a firm believer in TFP all the way!

    I'm tried just reading about hauling 3 tons of sand in buckets!
