Hi to all in this Forum,
It's nice to meet you!
I come with newbie questions so please don't shoot me down Also English is not my mother tongue , so excuse my spelling mistakes.
My wife and I are probably going to by a house with an indoor pool. Since both of us are not familiar with pool maintenance and having a pool in general, I come to you with questions. Water chemistry is some what familiar to me, I've had an aquarium hobby for + 5 years. We live in Finland where the outside temperature goes from +30 to - 25 (+86F to -13F ) depending on season. The pool is located on floor -1 below ground level.
My guesstimate on size is about:
2.5m x 5m x 2m deep
8 foot x 16 foot x 8 foot deep
What do we have to take into consideration about the pool? Heating? Of course weekly / monthly / yearly maintenance.
It's indoor, so I suspect that humidity and ventilation?
Are pool covers any good to combat evaporation and energy loss?
The pool is empty, so I have a chance to go in and look at the tiles. What should I look for?
What are pros and cons of having an indoor pool?
I saw that the technical room for the pool had a sand bag in the corner so I suspect that it has a sand filter system. What do I check on the system?
If we get a chance to see the house again, I could post some pictures for you to review. What type of pictures do I take?
Thank you very much for taking the time to read and answer the questions.
