Thread: Hello!

  1. Back To Top    #1


    Hi everyone!

    I am so happy to have stumbled upon this forum!

    I am a novice pool owner in Florida... I have owned my home for 3 years, and my vinyl-lined, in-ground pool is in need of a makeover. I am hoping this group's experience can come in handy and can help me avoid headaches and mistakes with whatever I am going to have to do to update my pool.

    I had the leak detectors out to patch not too long ago, and we all agree the old pool is aging and in need of some help.

    So, I'm going to catch up on any appropriate posts in the forum, and will be back qith questions -- thanks in advance for your help and understanding!
