My husband and I just bought a house with an in-ground pool. We are very excited about having the pool (I'm a teacher, so I've got plenty of time to use it in the summer!). I've been reading a lot on this forum, and just ordered The Ultimate Guide to Pool Maintenance by Terry Tamminen. I owned a pool years ago with my ex, but we always had someone open and close it, and it had a SWG system, which this pool does not have. So I'm pretty much a newbie for this one. Looking forward to "meeting" people on the forum.
