    New to the pool

    Just bought a house that has a 8505 gal outside chlorine pool in Parrish,FL.
    I have always had a hot tub back home and keep the water perfect.Seems there is more to know about being a pool owner than I thought
    so I thought I would start here.Looking forward to learning more about taking care of it myself here.
