A neighbor and friend was unable to open his pool last year due to a serious health issue. Sadly he did not recover and passed during the winter months. Another neighbor (a fellow pool owner) offered to assist his wife in opening up the pool a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, he took one look at the rather complicated pumping and the swamp like, tadpole filled pool and disappeared into the sunset. The widow mentioned this situation to my wife at a neighborhood BBQ we held to celebrate the graduation of my son and some of his friends. The wife and I volunteered to help her get the pool going and here we are.
I have done some reading here and already done a good deal of work. I will open a thread in the "Swimming Pool Start-Up" section and go over my progress there. If you are still reading at this point, Thank you for your patience, see you in the "Swimming Pool Start-Up" section.
