Just purchased a house with a 18X36 in ground pool. Upon our home inspection (at quick glance) it seems the pool heater (natural gas) and pump are dated.
So I'm sure that I will be looking at updating the equipment soon. The current owner is to have the pool open and functioning upon closing of house.
Now, I am green when it comes to the pool game but I do realize and appreciate the importance of maintenance and use of proper equipment.
I am also prepared to spend some money to update the equipment. I would like to make it as easy and efficient as possible, while protecting the investment and not to make a small problem a big problem.
With that being said I am looking for some advice / guidance in the following areas:
What is a good "rig" (i'll call it) to start out with?
What are the important things to improve?
Where to effectively spend the most money?
Is salt water a good option?
