We just finished the new pool last August. It is UV with ozone. So far we are doing well ourselves maintaining it. I am interested in more maintenance tips so that we can continue to keep it clear and balanced.
Congrats on the new pool. You'll probably be disappointed when we tell yo more about ozone and UV, but you'll understand more as you learn here. Below are a couple links you should read and save. Be sure to update your signature and include which test kit you are using for your water.

Sufficient chlorine levels are key to a clear pool. Please feel free to answer any questions you may have.
