    Southern Kentucky



    Hello from Kentucky!
    Just found this site and I am sooo happy!!

    We had a 24 x 52 ultra frame above ground intex pool last year, and I TOTALLY messed it up . We just trashed it and got a new one this year to start all over. We have 3 daughters and tons of their friends over all of the time. It seems that our house has become the 'hang out' house. Which is great for me, because I am all about my kids.

    Any who, I know that I have a lot of 'stupid' questions and know that yall will help me.

    Thanks again for any and all advice!!

    You know what they say, the only stupid question is the one you don't ask!

    I agree about the kids. I'd much rather have them at my house where I set the rules.

    Welcom to TFP!

    I am grateful to be here...Thanks for having me.

    I am looking for info mainly dealing with the BBB Method, how much, how often, etc. Which topics should I hit first? I have posted an inquiry, and hoping to have advice soon.

    This is an awesome site! Wish I knew about it last year!

    I have two questions...

    1. Where do you get a 'scumbug' &

    2. How do you calculate how many gallons in your pool?

    I have a 16 x 48 ag intex ultra frame...

    I thought I had figured right.
    I thought it was 6000 gallons, but
    someone questioned me about it, and
    now I am not for sure.

    Kristi,Use Jason's pool calculator here . At the bottom is a section for calculating pool volumes. BTW, I would bookmark the calc, it will be your best friend for calculating the 3 B's.
