Hello, I am Coobie and I just registered here at FTP. I am fairly new to the pool world as well. We purchased this home in June 2016 and have been learning ever since. I have no way of knowing the size (gallons) of the pool, but I can tell you in my area (Southern Ca) it seems to be larger than most residential pools. It is a bit older, mid to late 80's if I would have to guess. I would like to modernize it in the future.
Had some issues right away when the pool pump took a dive (pun intended). Since it was no longer working I did a little research and ended up purchasing a Pentair V/S pump. We had solar installed on the house and while we were making that deal, I had them install a pool solar thermal unit on my patio roof. This combination is one reason why I joined this forum, look forward to posts asking questions about Pentair settings, proper speeds, replacing a pool light, calcium removal, and more!
Thank you for taking the time to read my intro! I look forward to learning from all of you.
