Although I'm 73 yrs old, I'll be a newbie to having a pool installed this Spring.(AG) I retired early 1990s to Florida on my boat, so did a lot of swimming in the ocean and other salty waters. Then we bought a home in SW Florida to tie up the boat and I did some 'house sitting' during the summer months. Some had in-ground pools, so sort of picked up some knowledge and familiarity that way. We had some hurricane probs in 2004, so decided to change the scenery and moved to NW NC by 2005. We didn't have a pool and we realized how much we missed the 'pool and swimming atmosphere'. I started this past Fall to investigate and decide what we wanted and could afford. We expect to install our AG pool in April, and with the help and expertise of the members of this site, I'll have enough knowledge to keep my pool a happy and safe place! Thanks for having this site.
