Hello everyone, thrilled to have found this site!! Hubby and I are in the process of purchasing a home with an in-ground pool. Current homeowners haven't opened it in years. The equipment looks old and I don't have many details. Hoping for info from the inspection, which is expected to happen this week. My realtor has found a "pool inspector" who may check it out also. Thought I'd post to see what you guys recommend in this situation. I can post pics of some of the equipment when I am back at the house, but the pool is covered. Can you take a cover off in the winter? It might be frozen to the pool, right? I have absolutely NO pool experience. Just found the site today and though I plan to read the pool school in depth, worried I won't have time to finish before inspection period is over. Thanks in advance!!
