New house with pool, diving in...

Hi. We moved this past summer to our 2007 house w/ pool in North Carolina. I'm 64, retired military who always lived in furnished housing with a community pool.

We chose the house with family holidays in mind: all seven grandchildren love to swim.

Ownership has been a drink from a fire hose. I'm a diy kind of guy, engineer by training, trying to figure it all out. Every bit of help will be deeply appreciated, and I'll try to pay forward the favor if/when I'm the old hand.

Hey there Gene.... HoooAh! My husband Skippy is also retired Army ('69-'95) so I want to THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!

You'll find help here for any questions or problems that pop up....we love DIYers!

I'd suggest digging into the Pool School articles (consider them your FM, no cartoon drawings though)
