I'm Robyn (aka girl1der) from Fresno, California, which is right in the center of the San Joaquin Valley. Although we are not new to pool ownership, we are new to this kind of pool. Our former one was a small 10' x 20' (5 ' in the deep end) fiberglass in-ground pool. We moved this past October and this pool (description in signature) came with the new house. It's been great to look at and we even got in a couple of times in the cooler weather, but recently we've been having trouble keeping our pool free from algae. I will be starting a new thread with my chemistry numbers in the hopes of getting it back into shape so we can start using it.
