A little history:
We moved into our home this past November and are looking forward to using our pool which is an above ground. The pool was installed in 2007, used for the whole summer and we assume was closed properly at the end of the 2007 season.
The homeowners (who are military as are we) moved out in March 2008 and nothing has been done to the pool since (OUCH). We are still trying to get all the water and heavy leaves off the cover which has a significant worn area that has progressed into a hole. The more we syphon the more it seems to rain, LOL!
We've never owned a pool and are completely clueless! I have some homework to do here reading through the site to gain knowledge. Tonight we bought a pool starter kit from Wal-Mart and we would like to start working on opening our pool as tedious as it may be.
Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated ~ in the meantime I am off to the forums to be educated.
Thanks so much!
