    Hi from NC!

    Hello! My name is Danielle and my husband and I will be joining the rest of the lucky population of pool owners in April! We are having a 14x28 ft vinyl pool with a Hayward super motor and sand filter installed! We know NOTHING about pools but are excited to learn and look forward to the memories we will make with our children.

    Danielle, welcome to the forum.

    The resources here are invaluable and a bit overwhelming perhaps at first.

    Don't worry. There are many, many folks here who will gladly help along the way.

    Welcome, I am not sure how much the electric rates are there, but if your getting a 1 speed Superpump, you should be aware it is a bit of an energy hog (can cost its own price in electricity in one season), we generally advise people with cheap electricity to at least get a 2 speed pump, and people with high electric rates are best served by investing in a variable speed pump.
