Hi all! I'm a brand new pool owner in Corona, California, a suburb approx 50 miles out of Los Angeles. I found TFP about three years ago and have been dreaming about putting up a pool since. We put up a brand new 18' round Intex pool in June of this year. It's warm here and although on severe water restrictions, we needed another way of cooling down besides staying inside with the a/c running 24/7. My hubby helped me put the pool up but pretty much said I'm on my own with maintenance since he works seven days per week some weeks. I'm okay with that. I was doing pretty well until we had a major storm a week ago that pounded our pool and shorted out the pump. It shut off and now I'm trying to get my pool back to where it was.
