    I'm arctanx, hello from FL

    Hi all, I'm a new home and new pool owner from Florida. I have many, many questions regarding proper pool maintenance and care. My pool is currently about 15 years old, and is need of some TLC. So I figured I would join a community and start learning so I can start taking care of some things myself...I have zero experience with pools, but I have some books I've read an am trying to learn. Right now I've got once per week service for $90/month. Well, I'm looking forward to my experience here!
