  It depends on your local regulation.   This is the regulation for:   METROPOLITAN NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY   Maximum Bather Loading   For the purposes of computing user-loading, those portions of the pool 5 feet or less in water depth shall be designated as "non-swimmer" areas...
Depending on the size of your pool and the materials you are using it would be best to consult someone else. The cheapest materials though would be plastic and using your own man power.
Mop the floor with the tile cleaner. Spray the cleaner on walls and  counters then wipe it down with a soft sponge. Avoid abrasive mops  and sponges because these scratch the tile and can damage old  grout.
It depends greatly on the size pool and shape, and of course if you build it yourself or not. I will answer this question based on a 16x32 rectangle pool.If you were to pay your local retailer for buying, and building the pool, you would be looking at somewhere in between 22 and 29k for your basic...

  can you use bromine tablets in a small above ground poll instead of clorine?
Look at a product called "skamper ramp" and see if that will fit your needs.
Length x width x average depth*. Multiply result by 7.48 to  determine volume in gallons.    * 'average depth' is shallow end + deep end divided by two  
  So long as the grouting is done correctly a tiled pool is much easier to keep clean and looking uniform. other then that there isn't that much difference.
  Filter unless you don't want to filter the water
10- 8 for swimming and two outside lanes to keep the backsplash down
Tannin is easily removed with a solution of hydrochloric acid or even chlorine or bleach.
110. A mile consists of 1760 yards (5280 feet). Therefore, in a pool 16 yards in length, you would need to swim from one end to the other 110 times. (110 x 16 = 1760).
Answer is noYou can remove a round one and install an oval after, of course, you make necessary adjustments to the ground--making the ground level in an oval instead of a circle. The only things you might be able to re-use from the round pool are the pump/filter, ladder, skimmer and return fittings,...
  The information I have been able to gather to date indicates that it would be better to seal the stone with a suitable sealer first,

There are three basic tests for outdoor swimming pools: chlorine (ppm - parts per million)pH (in pH units, from 0 - 14, 7.0 - 8.0 is normal for a pool)stabilizer (ppm, from 20 - 100)This applies to all chlorinated pools, INCLUDING 'salt water' pools, which are also chlorinated by the salt water...

President Kenedy. The indoor pool was built by FDR in 1933. He had polio and it was therapeutic to do his exercises in a heated pool.
1 cubic foot = 1,728 cubic inches 1 gallon = 231 cubic inches 4' x 4' x 8' = 128 cubic ft = (128 x 1,728) cubic inches = (128 x 1,728 / 231) = 957.51 gallons (rounded)

You look shorter because the light changes direction as it hits the water in an effect known as "refraction".
  == Borax is a safe alternative ==     Borax is perfectly safe in swimming pools. We started using it in our inground pool two years ago and would not use anything else. Not only is it less expensive (a lot less expensive) but the water feels softer when we use it. My husband had to...
  Advice into the filtration of your pool is best answered by a local pool professional, Check with your local pool shop.
In theory the same amount of water would be displaced in each case; i.e. the coin landing in the boat would cause the boat to displace additional water (sink slightly) equal to its own volume, which is how much the coin would displace were it to fall directly into the pool. This assumes, however,...
== Answer ==   Within reason, yes. According to Michael W. Smith II's BleachCalc program, you should add about 160 oz (weight) of dry borax for each 10,000 gallons. It supposedly helps against algae, although we use it to raise the water's pH and to buffer the pH at the level we want. ...
Area of deck = (20+2d)x(40+2d)-(20x40)Area of deck = (20x40)+40d+80d+4d2 -(20x40)Area of deck = 120d+4d2
Baking soda actually raises the total alkalinity of your pool. This does also increase your pH, but should only be used if your test kit shows low alkalinity. Otherwise you'll raise both pH and alkalinity and then have to use alkalinity down. Borax will raise PH and not alkalinity, but it raises it...
You probably have the same problem I have - take a sample of your water to a pool store and have it tested. I did and needed to add alkalinity, pH enhancer, algaecide and one other chemical. You need a balance. Without doing this you could just continue to spin your wheels.   IN ADDITION:Water...

wow slow down there!!! adding to much stabelized chlorine over time will add too much cyanuric acid aka stabelizer or (CYA).So this means your pool water is out of balance a lot. red burning eyes,itchy skin are the first signs of improper balance. The only way to reduce cya is to drain out water and...

My propane company advised me NOT to use my pool heater. They said my pool heater would burn 5 to 6 gallons of propane per hour.
That's going to depend on -- the surface area of the pool -- the temperature of the water in the pool -- the temperature of the air -- the relative humidity of the air -- the barometric pressure -- the period of time you're interested in (evaporation in 30 minutes ? an hour ? a day ?) ...
A 1.5 horsepower pump should be fine.
Ionization is much better than salt system and about the chlorine you only need to put about 5 to 10% of the chlorine. With the ionization you will only have about 0.2 or 0.3 of chlorine and no more chemicals. Tha water gets very clear and shiny. No bacterias found in normal testing. Se www...
If it is just rain, you stay on your tower and guard the swimmers. If there is thunder & lightning, you clear the pool and wait 20 minutes from the last display of thunder & lightning before letting the swimmers back in the water. It is best if the swimmers are not standing on a wet pool...
You use it to kill the jerms in the pool!
  == Answer ==   The direction of the pool circulation: within the pool; water should circulate in a counter clockwise direction. Starting at the skimmer, water travels from the skimmer to the pump (the pump is what makes everything work like the heater etc, from the pump to the filter,...
== Answer ==   Oval pools I've seen require bracing around the permieter. Round pools do not (its physics).   == Answer From A Pool Expert ==   Oval pools also now have bracing options which run under the floor of the pool instead of around the outside. It is worth noting that round pools...
  Hobo's are por so, nothing.
Since 1 gallon equals 90,840 drops and 1 Olympic sized swimming pool has 660,430 gallons, there are 59,993,461,200 drops in an Olympic size swimming pool.
  == Answer determining volume ==   http://www.worldofwater.com/pond_volume.htm This website is for ponds but the formula is the same to determine volume. 
Over-chlorinate before you go on vacation and put your filter on a  timer so it runs every day. Last year I also got one of the  neighborhood kids to brush my pool once a day while I was gone for  ten days and came home to a clean pool.
