I'm new to pool maintenance but not new to pool ownership. My husband and I have had our pool for over six years. Since he didn't want to take on pool maintenance task, we had a pool service until last December. We resurfaced our pool last month, and I decided to do pool maintenance myself instead of paying someone else $100/mo. to come in for 5 min. every week.
Our pool was built 20 year ago. It had black spots at the bottom of pool and some part of plaster peeled off in the spa when we bought the house. We changed pool pump 3 years ago since the old one stopped working, and we also changed the heater last month while doing resurfacing. Now the pool looks a very nice. We are very happy with the new look.
However, there are still some other issues (endless problems keep coming just like the problems with a house .) For example, raising spa's water level drop to the pool water level after pump turned off, a long lasting issue.
Anyway, I'm very much looking forward to get help and advises from more experienced pool owner here and happy to be part of this community.
