    Cool Hello from an absolute newbie

    Hi All,

    Just thought I'd post up to say Hi!

    We bought a 7 Acre property in North Virginia late last year. Everything is perfect, but its lacking a pool. I'm originally from the UK, so obviously I've never had a pool before (not worth it for 2 weeks of sunshine in August), so I'm about a new as you can get to this topic <Brace yourself for some dumb questions!>

    Due to budget constraints, an in ground pool won't work, so I'm looking at getting an ABP (Yep, learnt that Acronym on here yesterday! )

    I'm off to search the ABP section for a newbie thread, if not, I'll create a new one.
