We need an “uncovering” thread for everyone who is opening their pools this spring!! 😬 I’ll start it in a couple weeks lol. My water is still frozen about 3 inches currently with some melted parts on the edges. Water looks crystal clear with a little dirt on the bottom. Which is to be expected, since I don’t cover my pool.

NO CHEATING!!!!
We should! My water is melted on the edges too, but I've got at least 6" of ice. I tried to stick my hand below it to see but I couldn't reach far enough.

I opened up my pool already....the day it was first filled... last November... havent closed since..
Hope that counts for 'everyone who is opening their pool' ...
My pool did see some ice though, when the TX global warming came through our town.

After this weekend, we are having a week-long stretch of temperatures in the 50s and 60s with no below-freezing nights so I’m hoping all the ice melts! Ready to drain this thing and prepare to install the new pool! 😬

Had our first swim of the season! Gotta love the solar heater and solar pool cover. Got the water up to 86 degrees last week. I love how clear this pool always is. Had family over and they were amazed how clear it was. The best part is I haven't poured any chemicals in my pool in months! SWG FTW! Thank you TFP.

A few shots at night; can barely tell there is even water it’s so clear! Love the TFP method.

I think the night shots are so cool! As long as they aren’t red. That’s creepy!

Did you have to wire that hose to get it to float in mid-air like that? 😂

Beautiful!

Jake: That is my problem too! I keep planning to do an Ascorbic Acid Iron stain removal, but I keep swimming and say whatever...

Looks REALLY clean!

Whoa Ice! What's that?

Newdude: Thanks. Too bad has a huge crack in the wall between the spa and pool. I really love this pool but it is in big need of a re-plaster. Wife says last thing we spend big money on, doing the kitchen remodel right now. Caulk seems to works on cracks in an emergency.

Red-beard & Mark: Thanks, I have thought of that but really just need to redo the whole thing. PB told me when I first moved in really just cosmetic so hasn't bugged me too much but these photos of some pools are crazy nice!
