    Its time to hear from some of your international representatives, ok, so it's Canada, your northern neighbor. (I live about 30 minutes north of Toronto) Yes we spell things a little differently here and use metric instead of imperial but taking care of pools is all the same. Did I mention our ability to dominate ice hockey and curling... for those of you who don't know what curling is, its probably a good thing.

    My name is Peter and this will be year #2 with our IG vinyl pool. I have learned a lot of stuff from this and the poolforums board over the past year. I am by means no expert but try and help where I can. Sometimes we all know whats right but need someone to confirm what we are thinking. I have a wife who has grown up around water her whole life and two kids aged 7 and 11. Our backyard landscaping is about 50% done and once the summer hits I will be in full construction mode once again. It is nice to see some of the pictures of all the pools and the hard work that has gone into them. I will post mine once all the work is complete.

    Have a great summer!

    I went to college in MN so I have coched hockey on a kids team. I tried curling but after a few times falling and moving a stone they told me I was to clumsy to be a sweeper. Played in the adult league broom ball as a golie. I am about 6'3" and about 300 to 350 depending on the season so I always got stick as a golie be it hockey or broom ball.
