Hey all!

For the newbies amongst us who might not believe that BBB is really all you need, I thought I would post these before & after pic's of my pool two weeks apart...all thanks to BBB. This pool came with the house we bought and had not been opened in two years. :shock:

Actually I didn't do a thing. It cleaned itself up once the water was balanced. It is an old-school, cement pool with fiberglass panel sides (circa 1983). The bottom is just bare cement...uncoated, unpainted. Next year when I have some cash, I would like to drain and give it a nice paint job, but it will have to do for now!

AH! Sorry, I assumed you did own it, and just had not opened it!

I really like the integrated coping/deck material! I love flagstone, or slate, or whatever other type of flat stone paver that may actually be!

Yeah, it looks like the former owner added the stone on top of an existing deck. Here is a better picture of the pergola area (Note BBB in progress :p). The only negative (to me) is the rough stone around the pool edge...I guess they wanted that "grotto" look. I have no idea what the stone is, but with so much you can understand my trepidation regarding a SWCG.

And yes that's R2D2. It's a cooler they used in convenience stores during Episode 1 (my wife used to work for Pepsi).

We call it the "Beer Droid". :lol:

Backglass, would you consider PM'ing me a few times of the day when you wouldn't be home?

The pool looks great! Mine wasn't nearly that bad but I cleaned up a major algae bloom in 4 days using BBB. When I started I had about 70% of the bottom of my pool covered with algae.
