    Super long lighter for fire pit?

    Might be a little more than what you are looking for, but I use this to quickly fire up my Big Green Egg: https://www.jjgeorgestore.com/weed-torch-32-reach/ There’s also a smaller 20 inch version.

    2019 Spring Opening

    I have already switched back to liquid chlorine a week or so ago, along with trichlor tabs, since the need for the initial large amounts of chlorine has gone down. It probably only has a couple more days of filtering before it’ll be clear. I can start really fine tuning things then.

    Day 16 The pool is almost there. It continues to clear everyday and I can see the main drain at the bottom of the deep end. The pollen has been heavy and it hasn’t helped, but the pool has kept on trucking towards clear. I should be in the clear by Saturday. Since I am close to the end I...

    That is the transition to the deep end. I can’t wait until I can see the Polaris and the main drain in the deep end. There’s improvement each day in the water clarity. Still running my pump on low 24/7 until it clears.

    Day 9 This morning my FC levels were well below shock levels since I didn’t check it yesterday evening or add more chlorine last night. I added enough cal-hypo to raise the FC back to shock levels, 11ppm, even though it was short lived. When I got home from work the FC levels were low again...

    Day 8 Although you can’t really tell from the pictures, the pool looks less cloudy from day 7 to day 8. There’s been improvement each day so that is encouraging. I got a little lazy yesterday, or busy running after my 3 year old, and didn’t check my levels or add any chlorine before going...

    Day 6 I went ahead and updated my signature. I have a sand filter so it’ll take a little while to filter the water. I was planning on adding some DE a little later in the process but decided to give it a shot today since it is the weekend. I went through a few rounds of DE and backwashing. I...
