    New pool owner - hi all

    As of April 1st I am a new pool owner. It came with the house I just purchased. To be honest, having a pool wasn't a requirement for us, we loved the house and it came with a pool. So I am in learning more about pools, I've never had one or been near them growing up (I grew up in the snow). So...
