    New to forum, need lots of help

    Hi folks, Thanks or the welcome, I am so glad I found Y'all. I am 67 years young and,
    Because of my husbands disability I am forced to learn pool maintenance. Our ABG pool is 12 years old (25 year predicted life span), I am just learning the opening up procedures. Ronnie had a brain hemorrhage 3.5 years ago. My son has opened the pool and maintained it the last 2 years but no longer has time to deal with it and last year one sensitive skinned grand child, actually had a chemical burn from swimming in it. I have just discovered the BBB method of maintenance so am switching to it.
    I need to get on with using the pool, it is my only relief from caregiving and working.
    chlorine system, sand filter, Hayward pump, 24" round abg, BBB method
