I grew up with an in-ground pool in NE Florida, helping my dad with chemicals, brushing, vacuuming, pump repair, etc. I convinced him to switch to a salt system after experiencing a neighbor's pool, and he's been very happy with it.

We had planned to build a pool at our house in FL until my job moved us to CA in 2019. We purchased a home with a 15-year-old pool here in Orange County. I love jumping in after a neighborhood run, and the family gets a lot of use out of the spa.

I've had my hands full with a broken SWG, broken heather and home warranty claim, seized backwash valve, missing parts, lights burning out, 300 ppm cyanuric acid, etc. But I love having something to tinker with...
