Pool was here when we bought the house and it get constant use the two months a year it's nice enough to be in the water. Over the years I've re-tiled the scum-line tiles twice due to pop-offs. I replaced the pump last year. We do all winterizing, opening and maintenance work ourselves. Learn as we go. It's interesting but the $$$$$$$$ if you make a mistake can be a bit stressful.

Hi, welcome to TFP! Don't worry, soon you will have a frosty beverage of choice and a relaxing pool and everything else will just fade away....

That's true. We've been in the house 10 years and we do get maybe 2.5 months:oops: of use in the pool. Starting off early this year though, so we'll cross our fingers!
