    New AGP on the way - plenty of questions

    I have decided to go ahead and add the second return. I don't plan on closing the pool, my friends with IG pools don't drain theirs during the winter here so kind of following their lead.

    Yes I am burying the pipe and have a handful of unions and valves. I hope to start the process this weekend. I am now reading all about nut grass preventers.

    New AGP on the way - plenty of questions

    I have inboxed most of it and started checking to make sure everything is here. I just realized there is only one return so I'm thinking about adding one during construction since it will be easier. I just tested my fill water: PH 7.8 CL 1 BR 2 FL 1.5 CC 0 TC 1.5 CH 125ppm TA 130

    Mark from Georgia

    Well we did it, we ordered a AGP last week. Last year we were house shopping and made an offer on a house with an IGP but they wouldn't budge on their price. So we ended up with a house and no pool. We have 2 kids that love water so we decided to purchase a pool instead of going on a...
