    First Timer, Not Moving In For Awhile

    Hi everyone, I just bought a house in the DFW, Texas area and it has a pool. The pool seems decent overall but needs some love - water is just a bit cloudy, some leaves and stuff in there. I've been reading the forums here and have already learned a ton. Forgive the lack of signature info - I...
