    Opinions on this frame issue (unlevel)

    I just set up the pool this year. Bought the house and the pool last year, struggled with the water, the pavers all broke when the pool filled, was a nightmare. This year things went much better up until now. Two pavers broke last night and I had an area sink, not an entire side, just the...

    Emerald Green every few days. I'm at a loss.

    FC: 3 CYA: 50 pH: 7.2 I haven't checked anything else as they were normal levels at the start of the season. From what I'm reading though, I guess shocking is my problem. I've never shocked my pool before and have had algae issues. But I may have accidentally shocked the pool this week by...

    New owner of a 22'x52" Intex Ultra. Now what?

    Just purchased my first Intex pool for pickup later today. So in the meantime, what should I be planning for? I'm going to move forward with permitting it out, even though I had heavily considered not doing so. But that aside, I need to level the ground. Once I have that level, planning on...
