I have a feeling I might be seen here a lot soon Thanks to those who run and contribute to this site.
I'm about to close on my first home and first pool next week. I've been trying to get up to speed on home ownership and pool ownership. The pool was absolutely beautiful and helped convince me to buy the place. Now, I have to keep it that way. I've been reading up on pool school and starting to learn, but it's a lot to take in.
My first questions are should I get a pool service until I figure out what's what and if so, how do I find a good one? I take possession of the house next Thursday and don't want to have a green pool by the end of the weekend.
I'm sorry I don't know the gallons (estimated), the specific equipment (other than it has a cartridge filter according to home inspection report), and don't have test results. On another starter note, according to the home inspection report, the pressure gauge is not working. The home inspector said it is a cheap part and all I have to do is buy another for $15, unscrew the old one and screw the new one in. Is it that simple?
Thanks in advance and looking forward to being a member of this site.
