    First timer

    We are pretty excited to have our first pool starting this summer! We recently built a home and decided to put the pool in right away. I enjoy DIY and doing things around the house, so wanted to join this forum early to educate myself.

    The pool is 18x40 in-ground with pool crete and vinyl liner. No slide yet, but have it plumbed to add later.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
