Hello, I'm kind of new to pool ownership. Been in our house with built-in pool for just under 2 years. In that time I've tried doing the service myself and also having a professional service do it for me. Both seem very costly. And it was a struggle to keep the water clear and in balance doing it myself. So we just drained, scrubbed and refilled out 10,000 gallon pool to start fresh. So I'm joining this group to learn more and help decide if I should try taking care of it again myself, now that I'm starting fresh with new water, or if I should go ahead and let the pool guy take care of it for me.
