    Hello from the Oasis

    new to the pool thing, purchased a house with a large in ground concrete type pool. So far it's been a bit stressful to have one. It was my wifes idea to get a house with a pool, and to me I enjoy it when it's clean, but it takes alot of time to keep it clean. So in alot of ways I'm over it....... but I'm giving it another chance and and trying to find a way to keep it clean with robots and having the tree guy come by to cut my neighbors oaks which just seem to drop leaves straight into it

    But all the trees going in from me are self cleaning palms, Foxtails, Triangles, Bottles, Alexanders, Kings and Flames so atleast I don't have messy trees.
    15,750 Gal in ground, plaster pool.

    I'll get the other specs tonight once I get home.

    Welcome to TFP!

    All trees get junk in your pool. Of course, some are worse about it than others. Ask me about wax myrtles.
