we're a family of 5 in the deep south and bought a midcentury time capsule recently. just the pool area is abt the size of our previous home, so we have tremendous work to prove it was worth the deal.
the pool house was rented separately before. we are very pleased to have cleaned it out as best as we can for now and are refilling it tomorrow as soon as we replace the lightbulb (and gasket?).
this first photo is after we had to do some emergency shocking and filling, scrubs of the sides for the appraisal, scooping giant sheets of algae. (and fishing out chairs, concrete, a radio, and food cans....) the pump appears to work.
here's working on it.
and after carefully working off the cover of the bottom drain, i am glad to say we are much closer to glass, screw, and nail free, if not completely.
i already appreciate the direction towards the fas-dpd test kit.
i used bbb when we had the intex in the previous yard.
