I bought my house last year (in June), and out of fear used the previous owners pool guy to maintain my pool. This year, Im giving it a go on my own. Is there a reliable step by step list for opening my type of pool somewhere? (edit: I found the forum for this)
...please excuse my ignorance, I am only just learning now.
Also, I have a Hayward sand filter which (according to the pool cleaner) is very old. He told me that it would cost me $4000 to replace, and that it could go any time. I researched and saw that these filters go for around $450. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt, but was I being swindled??
