    First Results from TF-100 Kit

    I've added bleach in the amounts stated above, both of which I got from the pool math app based on my ~2500 gallon pool. The target was 10 FC and even after the second application of bleach I'm still only registering 3.5 to 4 FC. Does this seem normal and that I'll have to keep adding more...

    Planning an in-ground Michigan build.

    I do have a vinyl pool builder coming today to look over what they could do for us. The fiberglass installer did stop by to confirm that they could in fact get the pool into the backyard, so that appears to at least be an option.

    Planning an in-ground Michigan build.

    First post here on the forum after lurking for a little bit. We've been using a 15' Intex the last few summers and with the kids getting bigger (just turned 6 and 3 ) we've decided to seriously explore an in-ground pool. We're in the Saginaw, Michigan area and it's mostly vinyl installers near...
