Hi! Newbie here who has been lurking in the hot tube section for about a year. This site has been an incredible resource in helping me maintain my girlfriend's hot tub, so I decided to graduate to maintaining her pool this year! We just had a service open the pool today and I'm immediately regretting my choice to maintain it this year. The previous company we used to close the pool left all the Fall leaves before putting on the cover. I now have tens of thousands gallons of tea, but that's an issue for another post.
