    Hello from Chesapeake, VA

    New member here! Love this site. Since I'm a type-A organizer AND engineer, I will be spending many hours here trying to maintain my pool to perfection. That "I'm overwhelmed" feeling is starting to go away. I mostly felt that way after my 1.5 hour pool school from the builder. That's a lot of info at one time without any pool experience!

    I'm surprised no one has written a book / manual that basically covers pool school for different pool setups (ex. vinyl IG with SWG). Would be nice to have as a reference. TFP is the closest I can find. Thanks to everyone who helps out. Hopefully I can also provide advice at some point!
