10157335_10203717189874253_294159354116938444_n.jpg


since we finished filling with well water we ended up getting a algae bloom..
pondwater2_zps8569f5df.jpg


with help of POOL SCHOOL, POOL MATH , Forum members, TFT100 pool test kit, and POP( i learned that term pool owner patience) 2 days later, crystal clear!
poolsecondday_zps82fcdac0.jpg


decided to clean the filters even though the pressure didnt really go up much.... gotta love well water... not!

1545712_10203738484606608_8046319695148080271_n.jpg


cleaned filters using the FILTER FLOSSER... worked like a charm.. back to new!
1959358_10203738485726636_7249201426130788174_n.jpg


and that is where i stand for now... gonna work on the berm till the fence comes in ( a week away i hope) and just maintain water quality!

Nice, I've been watching your progress daily on our way to work. Burlington to Antioch. Pretty sure it's yours. Thanks for the daily show and conversation topic.

Cool! Thanks for posting all the pics! I love to watch the beginning to end posts and dream. :) You have a beautiful backyard and now pool! Now if we could just turn off this rain and get some warmer temps here in the Midwest!
Enjoy!

Very pretty! That green pic scared me a little! Glad you got it balanced back out to clear and blue again! I'm definitely interested in seeing those rocks in their new home. I don't even like moving the marble chip rocks I have in my side yard. Those big ones are going to take time!

thanks. it will be nice when the landscaping is done. its proving hard to keep clean at the moment with the dog (and occasionally me) going into the mud..
