    Howdy

    Just joined.
    Had this pool since 92 but I am just now taking over the care of it. My wife wanted the pool so I let her care for it all these years- lucky me.
    I simply want to learn how to do it now - lucky wife.
    My interest started when I heard about the BBB Method.
    I am enrolled full time at TFP's Pool School.
    I'll be posting questions soon. Currently covered for the winter & we'll soon be opening.
    19,800 gallons (closed/winter 18,654 gal); plaster; 18x34 Ft kidney bean shape, Depth 3Ft-5Ft. Built 1992
    Pentair Whisper Flow Pump 1HP. Winter safety cover w anchors.
    Sand filter, Pentair Sand Dollar Top Mount Model SD80; Effective Filtration Area 3.5SF
    - FlowRate 75GPM, 8Hr 36,000, 10Hr 45,000, 12Hr 54,000; Pressure Weight 50PSI
    BBB (Hayward Chlorinator when leave town). Polaris 360 cleaner.

    Ditto for the Mermaid Queen, she is stuck in her tank so you gotta forgive the bad sense of humor (which is why we love her!)

    As you can see, we like to make pool care FUN!
