Here on the island of Bohol one can't just run out to a pool store or walmart. I get powdered Chinese chlorine that I worry about, but people use it for drinking water so... That and muriatic is available. I can get stuff off amazon, have it shipped to family in Oregon and transshipped here, but that can take a few months so one has to think ahead. Trying to find agaecide currently and pool algaeside on amazon is spendy, so I searched a chemical listed on one and it came up with Arm and Hammer super washing soda and in the process I found this place. I have aq lot of reading to do, but I thought I'd just throw that info out and see if someone might know if it will work. Also want to show off the pool I built. Made a few mistakes but not too many but I'd never done anything like this before.
Here am I with a friend...
We're adopting a couple kids and like to have their friends and classmates over.
Peaceful pic...the place is often a crazy spot with kids but i do get it to myself sometimes. The pool is poured concrete, I bought a mixer a few years back when the road construction on the circumference road was finished and they soldf all their nice diesel mixers. Never made a better purchase! I used to do carpentry in the US, but no masonry. While here I learned what is possible with concrete and metal bar and have had some fun with the stuff. For instance the spiral staircase in the pic above. That actually drove me a little nuts but came out well.
