So I have been reading a little in the forum and thought I would go ahead and join. I am buying a house in a month or so and it has a Vinyl Pool in place so I thought I would get a head start on learning and saving money with my new to me pool. I don't know the measurements or anything of the pool but hope to get some of that this weekend when I look at the property again. I have a feeling that the previous owners had someone maintain it for them so I don't know what all things I might need to buy (ie pool net and vacuums) but that's all part of the journey I guess. I'm set on making this as inexpensive as possible and it looks like the BBB method is the best at that. I have never maintained a pool but i have a lot of experience in keeping reef tanks but most of that knowledge is completely the opposite of a pool. I think it won't be all that hard to do since its such a large volume of water and takes a lot longer for things to change than in a 100 gallon reef tank. Hopefully it will be pretty pain free and I can really enjoy my pool this summer.
