I just moved to Arizona from Oregon. The home I purchased has an awesome pool. I wouldn't want to live in the desert without one.
I am a total newbie to pool ownership and maintainence although I'm a pretty handy guy. The place I bought was a bank owned home so I know nothing about the pool and no accessories were left with the place. I'll be moving into the place in about a week.
What do I do now? lol.
I'm thinking of getting a pool company to go in there a few days before it closes just to make sure the water is ready to go when we get in there.
After that, I'll probably take care of things myself. The pool is an in ground concrete diving pool. Old style. The deep end is 9 feet deep and although I haven't measured for the dimensions yet, I'd guess it's about 18 feet wide and 35 feet long. All the equipment is there and working. Pump, filter, etc.
So what equipment do I need and what chemicals, test kits, etc. do I need right off the bat?
Thanks in advance for your help.
