    Introduction

    Hello TFP. Looking to gain vast knowledge in the world of pool ownership. Little bit about me. Family of 3. Live in Raleigh NC. AD Coastie looking to retire hopefully in less than 5 years. I have (as discribed in my signature) as an Intex Metal frame pool 20x52. Sand filter (3k gph) skimmer and using a hand vac (for now). New to the pool world..had one for years growing up but dad did all the maintenance, I did all the swimming. Trying to allow my son the same privilege cant emphasis TRYING enough. Thanks in advance for all your advice.
    20x52 (10600 gal) Intex above ground, chlorine sanitizer, well water to fill. Intex 3000 GPH sand filter. Hand Vac or Hayward Diver Dave, surface skimmer. NC climate.
