    Hello everyone! I am a total newb, and right about now feeling very overwhelmed. Bought a new home in the middle of the summer that has a pool and jacuzzi spa. I haven't been able to master "balancing" my water and am getting ready to close the pool, and open the spa. I'm a step by step kinda guy. Anyone able to walk an idiot through balacing and closing the pool and opening the spa? Any help is appreciated!!

    Start with Pool School.

    Then ask any specific questions you may have; you'll at least know the lingo we'll be using if you started in Pool School!

    I urge you to invest in a good test kit. It's really indispensable if you want a trouble-free pool (or spa). What constitutes a good test kit is discussed in an article in Pool School
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
