    Spring opening started with a liner change. Thank goodness for simple start-up!

    So yeah...last fall we developed a small leak in our 3yo "I've got garbage bags thicker than that" stock AGP liner. Winter saw it lose most (80% or more) of its water.

    Cut to May, thought we found the leak, started refilling, back yard is soaked 2 days later.

    Several hours spent with food coloring, goggles, and every trick I could think of...no luck. Never did find the leak.

    Fine. Order new 20mil (actual 20 mil, by golly, none of this "gauge" garbage) liner, spend a Saturday morning with some amazing friends helping out, and presto...spiffy new liner.

    3 days of fillup, head to the store for some bleach, drag out the trust TF100, and with just a few hours work...

    It's gonna be 32 C today, water temp's already up to 29 C....HECK YEAH!

    Thanks as always for the info, support, and friendship, TFP gang!

    You said the magical two words we love to hear at TFP, "bleach and TF-100". Someone in this pic looks like they're ready to go in. Woof! Enjoy your swimming season.

    LOL I wish. I seem to have acquired the world's only GSD that HATES the water.
