OK my turn...finally got some pool photos downloaded.
Hi everyone. My name is Sean and I'm an insomniac (I blame it on the early days with AOL chat rooms)...with a pool.
I've got a beautiful Wife and three fantastic kids (Brit, Jake and Jared).
We are Christians and love our church(es).
I've lived in Sunny South Florida for ... gulp... 39 years, and lovin it! I don't really think I'm on-line as much as "some others" here, but I think I take the cake for the oddest hours (look at the times of my posts 8) )
I love boating, fishing, ATVing, camping, cigars, and my ridin mower!
I've been in the Pool industry for 20 years.
Currently doing what I enjoy, traveling 70% of the year, working with pool contractors, commercial pool facilities, and homeowners. Needless to say, I spend alot of time in hotels and back yards.
My Pool is a simple roman shaped 19K gallons. I have a Hayward C-1200 cartridge filter (120 sq ft), Sta-Rite 1 hp Duraglas pump, Pool Pilot Total Control salt chlorine generator, and Aqua Cal Heat Wave heat pump. My pool cleaner is a Sta-Rite Great White (about 3 yrs old) with a Hayward In line leaf trap (worth it's weight in gold!) to prevent debris from clogging up my pump basket. The finish is a Blue Diamond Brite, exposed aggregate surface. Cool Deck with brick pavers for coping.
Standard pool light, but I am about to swap it out for a Rainbow LED light, that will give me assorted colors that should look awesome at night. I'll take photos and attach them later.
I thank Sean B for creating this site and as you all have seen (and contributed too), there is a nice following building up to rival even the best pool forums out there.
I hope I can be neutral and informative in my responses and if I sway into a sales pitch, please slap me across the face and let me know.
Pray for rain in Florida as this is becoming a record year of drought. Anyone, send some rain this way!
Thanks to everyone for owning a pool and especially thanks for the Pool Pilot and Aqua Cal owners!
OK..I'm done. Back to work.
