Hello from the Nickel City in Northern Ontario. I found this great forum a while ago when I was looking into buying a new AG pool after owning a 18' portable pool for a year. Glad I found the "pool school" section because I lost the pool last year to algae because I didn't have a clue what I was doing :)

We decided to buy a used 18' AG pool that came with fencing, deck, and all the pool stuff...just have to put a new liner in.
We're currently in the process of getting it all put together and can't wait to put some of the stuff I've learned at this site to use...including the BBB method of pool care.

I have a few questions already but will post them in the proper place.

Welcome to TFP!

That's beautiful country where you live. We came through there last year, camped near Callander and then at Mike's Park in Kagawong.
