I want to thank TFP so much! You guys always help! I took your advice and drained and bailed as much as I could then refilled and followed the pool school steps. Ive added my CYA and FC. So far PH is good but will continue to watch that daily as CYA can affect that. I am so grateful to you all. THis is our second year with our intex 12x24 and my family just loves it! My kids friends are looking forward to coming over. We had a tall deck put in last year and stairs so that my parents could get in and out with ease. We added 2 smaller decks on the side to include our version of a swim up bar (half a picnic bench) and a "poop deck". Looking forward to this years swim season. Im sure Ill be back for more advice. Here is a current pic Thanks again!
