Hi! I'm new to TFP mostly because this is the first time I have every owned a pool. My grandmother and I moved into our new house back in January and we love it! The pool in in ground surrounded by concrete (not sure of the exact size of the op of my head, sorry!) Anyway - Last year the pool was opened by a local pool company but the home owners then moved and didn't live in the house all summer and then when they decided to sell they had it closed by the same company and the previous home owner had already paid the local company to open it again this year on May 26th. My grandmother had put me in charge of pool care (which makes me nervous as I know NOTHING ) Last year the mostly drained the pool (it's little less than half full at the moment) and covered it with a soft tarp-like cover, which has been a nightmare and a hard top has already been ordered. I has a diving board and large entry stairs at one end.
All and all what I am trying to ask is:
- Is there anything that I need to make sure they do or don't do?
- Is there anything I should ask them or make sure they explain to me?
- Any tips?
I have read a lot of the articles in the getting started and it is a lot of great information but a lot of it is Greek to me and I am trying to learn its just a lot to take in!
Any and all information is greatly appreciated and I thank you very much for it!!!!!!
