long story short, I grew up using this pool at my grandparents house in Louisiana and it has been sitting unused and uncared for- for maybe 10 years. I'm driving there now and we will be there for a month. We would like to bring it back to it's former glory but my husband and I have no idea how to begin. We don't know if the equipment works or not, that will be the first thing we look at (right?) and I have been told there have been snakes spotted and possibly a chair in there, not sure of the gators, that was just for attention, te-he-he. Do we drain, clean and start fresh or get it clear and then go from there. It is a cement pool and my dad used to paint it before the start of every pool season. That is the only information I have at the moment, when I get on site, I can updateUnknown-1.jpegUnknown.jpeg. I could use help on just where to start in general. I know checking the equipment, other than that, no clue. We appreciate any advice and suggestions y'all can give us.
