    1st time pool owner from IL

    First time owning a pool. All I can say is I'm glad this isn't 20 years ago. The amount if info posted online is amazing.

    Wife and I purchased a home a few months ago that was a short sale (basically empty for almost 2 years - same goes for the above ground pool). We live in the Chicagoland suburbs and would like to start enjoying our pool.

    This is our first pool and I just made a thread about where to start with my pool. I will post a link to this thread for other members to see.

    Open to any advice and suggestions.

    Chris
