My name is Heather from Omaha, NE. I entered the wonderful world of pool ownership last summer. My husband and I are learning as we go! Last year we invested in a SWG to avoid chemicals. It worked great but our pump really did not. We are hoping to have our pool back up and running in the next week or so and are thinking we should get a sand filter. Hoping to enjoy the pool a little more and spend less time worrying about the cloudy water this year! Thanks for all the already valuable information!
