after a few weeks of blood, sweat, a few tears and many cuss words, I finally have my pool installed, and almost full. I did not do the ground excavation and I had water trucked in..other than that, everything was assembled by me, my wife and two oldest boys (12 and 10)....I am very happy with our outcome..but what a TON of work!! Next spring we will be putting the deck on.
This is a 33 foot round and 52 inch deep. Yeah it's HUGE! I got a deal on it...it is a little over 2 years old, and I got the complete package for $600..which included pool, filter, pump, heater, covers, etc etc. It has all Stainless steel hardware, epoxy coated wall and rails, steel verticals, and a 10 inch top rail all the way around.
Here's some pics:
Now, my question is..now that it's got 46 inches of water in it...DO I test the water BEFORE I add any shock or pool start up chemicals? What do I need to test for if I should test prior to adding anything?
Thanks for looking.
