    Red face Long-time pool owner here!

    We've had three pools: a 12'x24' Intex above-ground with cartridge filter; a 30' round above-ground with sand filter, and now, our 20'x40' in-ground concrete/vinyl lining with DE filter.

    We've lived in this house for 7 years and have learned A LOT about pools because this one was built in 1985 and it's Old Skool and requires constant maintenance.

    One day we hope to replace the entire system and go Saltwater, but we're waiting til we have to replace the vinyl again, and then we're doing some renovating to the pool and pipes as well. So until then, we're nursing this baby along.

    Anyway, just heard about this forum and thought I'd stop in.

    Circa 1985 Old Skool pool ~ 44,800 gal 40'x20'x12' octagon concrete, Armstrong/Crystal 27 Mil vinyl liner, 4'-12' deep, Hayward EcoStar SP3400VSP 3HP pump, Pentair Nautilus INS48 DE filter, Hayward CL200 inline automatic chlorinator, SR Smith 10' U-Frame diving board

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Do not be surprised if the methods of maintenance we teach are different than what you have learned over the past 7 years. I would not be surprised if what you might learn here makes your pool experience easier and cheaper
