    edkkang- Hello from a new pool owner!

    Hello! I'm a first-time pool owner from central NJ!

    I'm very into managing my own home and I'd like to master this whole pool thing. I'm sure I'll be here for many years, for as long as I own a pool so I'm pleased to introduce myself to this community. I've been reading posts in here for a few days now and it seems like a very friendly forum of knowledgeable people!

    Background:
    20160623_140448.jpg20160624_120835.jpg
    - This pool is estimated 15 x 30 feet, depth 3-7 feet run on a Hayward DE4820, using ~6 lbs. of DE.
    - There are 2 jet returns (red circles), 1 skimmer (black square), and a main drain (black circle) in the pool.
    - There's a pool heater and chlorinator system tied in with this pool but I haven't touched them yet. Basics first.

    Welcome to TFP!
    nice pool you have there, and I'd like to do a flip off of that diving board!

    This is a great forum and lots of folks to help out. Please take some time though to read through Pool School. It's the first place to start when learining how to take care of it yourself. Plus, all of the answers to most peoples posts came from the pool school articles.

    It's Summertime!
    Enjoy!
