I found this forum a couple of days ago and think it will be really helpful. My wife and I are about to have our first pool started in a couple of weeks. We are going with gunite, 17x34 free form, but have no clue about anything else. Our PB is pushing chlorine, but we aren't sure what is best. I'm more than a little concerned about pool maintenance and it seems pretty confusing, even after reading through the pool school. Anyway, this is a great site and I welcome any advice on pool construction/choices for our build.
