    kellyiscoolbythepool sayn hello

    Quick intro ... I'm a 42 yr old (very newly) single Mom of 2 boys. After a miserable 17 months of apartment dwelling with the boys I found my dream home at a great price. One of the things that made it my dream home was the 27ft pool and fenced private backyard

    The only pool experience I have had was with one of those Intex "pop up" pools but I did manage to keep it sparkling. The liner here was damaged and the cover did not make it through the winter so I hired a local company to replace the liner and hook the pump up for me and now I'm in charge from here.

    Being a single mom that's not very mechanically inclined I've found google to be my #1 source of how to information and let me tell you I was happy as a lark when I found this place!!!

    I'm ignoring all the naysayers about how much hard work I have in store for me with this pool and some of the basics I read in Pool School confirmed what I thought... it's more diligence than anything and I don't necessarily need 50 different chemicals dumped in my pool to keep it sparkly

    Hey, Kelly,

    Welcome to the forum. You are dead on. Diligence and knowledge is the key. Once set up, your pool will be relatively simple to manage. Ask lots of questions.
