    Finished Above Ground pool with small deck

    I browse here often and tell everyone I can about this site!

    We finally got our pool up and finished (at least for this summer). This is the largest above ground we have owned yet and it has brought a few new challenges..... Namely the fact that I am not tall enough to reach over the side to take care of the intake screen or the over the wall skimmer. LOL, a stool and the pool skimmer pole have remedied that situation.

    I am the "pool guy" in the family, but myself and my husband are working hard to learn the TPE method. So far, I feel like we are doing pretty good. When these pictures were taken, we were still in the process of getting to "sparkly-it is" pool water! The day after we put our pool up, we got 3 weeks of storms and rain.

    We finally have it under control and have a beautiful sparkly pool and we could not be happier! There are more updates to come, we hope to eventually build a box of some sort at the base of the pool and also plan to expand the deck around to the back side of the pool to create a large sitting area. I have learned so much from you guys here and hopefully will be supporter soon.

    Thank you so much to everyone on this site!!! It has been such a huge help to us

    If I'm lucky and did this right, here are some pictures:







    If not, I will read the posting pictures again, LOL....

    I see them! Great job! I love the float holder! That is awesome! Good job Honey! LOL

    So what test kit are you using? It makes all of the difference for sure!

    Look at the clear pool! NICE

    For as much reading I have done on here, I know I need either the Taylor kit of the TF100 kit, but cost has deterred me from it so far. I have a tester kit from Home depot (drops not strips) and a wonderful friend at work with a TF100 who tests my CYA for me when I need it! I hope to have the full test kit next month. We are able to test for everything except the CYA with the kit I have.

    Kris! Did you know you can buy any test you want by itself! Here is the link to the CYA test. Poke around some on the site to find all that you need.

    Does your test kit from Home Depot have the powder test for FC? Here it is as a stand alone test.

    The TF kit is the best. In time it will pay for itself. Keep that in mind.
