    Hello from Ottawa, Ontario

    Hi folks. I'm happy to have found this forum. Lots of great information.
    I installed my own 24-foot round above ground pool 17 years ago, and I'm pleased to say that I just replaced the the original liner - yes a 17 year old liner. I guess I was doing something right over all these years.

    I decided to add a heater to the mix this time around so that we can hopefully get a slightly longer season, but so far the weather is not cooperating at all.

    Thanks for a great site.

    Welcome fellow canuck....nothing like pool ownership in the great white north...
    A lot of us here in the GTA are getting used to the sight of weeds on our lawns and everywhere else.

    Hi bcarty and welcome to the forum

    You obviously were doing more than one something right to keep your liner for 17 yrs!

    We're really starting to get a lot of canucks joining up lately, and we are glad to have you!
