    Hi, I'm new to this site and to owning a pool. We bought this house in March of 2015.

    We we have a very small, 3,000 gallon pool. It was very odd at first, but it has grown on us. It has a sun shelf with 2 returns and a fountain, a bench off of the sun shelf with 3 returns, 2 returns in the "deep" end, and a waterfall.

    Its not not a lot, but it has cooled us off the past couple of days.

    We had all the equipment replaced recently, but we are having pressure issues - there is none. This is being discussed in another thread.

    You know what this means? A 3,000 gal pool may turn into a 13K+ pool later. They're addicting. Welcome!
