    Hello!

    Hi everyone,

    We just bought ourselves a new home with an indoor lap pool. It's our dream house and dream pool, but we have no idea how to take care of it and are eager to learn so that we can begin using it.

    We have topped off the pool with municipal water and had a pool store open the pool for us, and hope to service/maintain the pool ourselves going forward. We have had propane tanks installed (the pool heater is fueled by propane) and will have the final inspection for that this week.

    We are starting with Pool School articles and hoping not to get overwhelmed.

    Cheers and thanks to all who contributed to help us novice pool owners,
    Eddie & Lynn
