    kyk96, New Member, love the site!

    Hi, my name is Kip.

    Just signed up as a supporter tonight, but I have been cruising the site since late last summer. We had an ill fated experience last summer tearing down a used pool we thought was a bargain. Not so much! Just loaded the whole thing up on a trailer tonight to sell for scrap. Parts would have been way more than the pool was worth, live and learn. Still got a pump and filter in good shape and a heater I sold to ease the pain, those things were worth what I paid alone. Now I have a brand new 24 ft round AGP in boxes in the garage waiting for warmer, dryer weather. So I will have lots of questions soon! We live in SE Michigan. I love this site and have learned a lot so far. I have a test kit on order so I am prepared and plan on starting out with BBB.

    Not just pictures - movies! With sound. So we can expand our vocabulary.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
