    What's your current pool temp?

    Kids had me crank up the Raypak on Friday. Pool temp has been around 82-84 through the weekend. Glad the warm weather is here.

    2019 Pool Opening in VA

    Thanks again for the advice. Before and after pics. Just waiting on the FC to come down to normal levels. Hoping CYA will drop after all the rain that we will have this weekend. All other levels good. See the guy in the blue shirt? Sure he is nice but he won't be back (pool company).
