    Hi all...

    First post here. We are a new pool owner (first one). Majority of the install completed yesterday and it is about 2/3 full of water now. Waiting for the installer to return tomorrow to complete the pump install and plumbing. Water temperatue is a whopping 58 degrees now...polar bear dip anyone?

    Looking forward to reading and learning more here in our overall effort to have a 'trouble free pool'

    Cheers

    Hi rkrandy,

    Is your water coming off a glacier?

    Welcome to the forum!
    Ha ha...no just out of the ground...we are on our own well and where we live is notorious for cold ground water...it is warming a little each day, into the 60s now...hoping to hit 80 in a week or so...
