    Great to be here!

    Hi all,

    Thank goodness for Trouble Free Pool. First time pool owner, and very intimidated by it. For past 6 months, I've been leaving its care and maintenance completely to my pool guy, who although responsive to my questions, seems a little annoyed by them. Kind of like, "hey I'm the professional, sit back, relax and let me do my job!" I get that, so the last week or so (after taking my first swim in the pool on the 4th of July) I've been doing my online research to answer my own questions and figure out if I'm getting my money's worth.

    I feel like I have a lot of elementary questions, but already from looking through the forum, I see this is a welcoming and patient bunch.

    Here's a couple of pics of my pool and equipment (any feedback is greatly appreciated):

    Roman in ground pool (16 x34, 20,400 gallons), cleaned professional every Tuesday, with a leaf skimmer, suction cleaner connected to skimmer via hose and brush. Pool pump is currently set for 6am-1pm daily. Pool is filled with a water hose two times/week for about 40 minutes (my understanding is filling pool isn't under restrictions by my city).
