So we bought this house last spring and it came with an above ground pool. I think it's 24' by 48" to the top of the skimmer hole?( I don't actually know how deep it's supposed to be). So I think that puts it around 16,000. At least that is what the pool store lady told me it was and to base my measurements off of. The previous owner used Pristine blue and I figured I would continue using it last year because it was already open when we moved in. I made the mistake of paying someone to close the pool in the fall and all he did was put the cover on and disassemble the pump and such. So I decided there was a better way and with two degrees and access to the Internet, all things are possible! I opened it yesterday and put it all back together successfully. A friend of mine put a pool in and turned me on to this site. I went ahead and ordered a test kit but he came over and tested my numbers so I could go ahead and get some advice. This is what I have:
It doesn't look too bad, just cloudy; better than I expected! The pristine blue never pulled off a pool that looked as good as the stories I see on here though! I need to get the leaves out (my friend just showed me how to use the vacuum hose this evening which really helped). What do you guys think????
I've linked some pictures I uploaded to Flickr.
I also have a 200 gallon hot tub but I haven't decided to test those waters yet (pun completely intended)!
Thanks in advance!
