    New to owning a pool

    I live near Houston TX, contractor and can do many things. So i thought lets build a pool. The cost of a gunnite pool added up to a lot so i decided on a liner pool. Got it built and now have issues with keeping it clean from sand and keeping the water levels right. I always need to add acid and add chlorine, and some times salt. Any help will be nice.
    New 2016 in ground liner pool, 18x36, 23,000 gallons, pentair 1.5 hp pump, iC40 chlorine generator, sand filter, well water
