New here to the forum and also to pools. Just got done reading Jason "Turning your green swamp" thread. It looks to be a great starting point for me. Anyways, as I said I'm new to the pool thing. My wife and I just bought a 5 year old foreclosure with a 3 year old in-ground pool. The house has been vacant for 2 years now and the pool has been covered the whole time. I peeled part of the cover back yesterday to see what the water looks like and it's nasty. I can only see about 3-4 inches down. I did notice that it looks to be a tiled pool which I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. I have a friend coming over today to see if he can get the pump going (he has some experience). After that I'm gonna go get one of the test kits from Jason's article and start the process. FUN FUN FUN!!!! lol.
Well wish me luck and I look forward to learning from everyone here.
