Hi All, My name is Nicole and I am from south Florida. My husband and I purchased our home in December. It just so happened to come with a nice pool. We never actually wanted a pool because of all the work and money that goes in to one, but we fell in love with a house and the house happened to have a pool! Of course, we love it now and our 2 year old swims 3-4 times per week with us. I joined because I'd like to understand how this works. I happen to be fascinated with learning (I was a teacher for 9+ years), so I always want to know the hows and whys of everything. I'm fairly pool-stupid, so this will be a learning experience for me.
The previous owners, the people who had it installed, were not very cooperative with us, so I have limited knowledge at this point. I do know, from permit records, that it was installed in March of 2010. I've been maintaining it by taking my water in to the local pool store every few weeks. So far we know the following about the pool:
It is 21,205 gallons.
It has a Hayward SWG.
It is not screened in and the back of our home faces north.
I would be glad to gather more info on the pool gadgets and stats for people who want to know. I am sure I'll need to learn this stuff eventually.
