Hi everyone,

I'm Priten and I moved in with my fiancé to a detached house in Oct 2020. We have an above ground pool (60K litters). We have a sand based filter which holds about 68 KGs (150 lbs) of sand. Having to own and maintain a pool for the first time was/is challenging and everyday seems like a battle.

Learnt a lot in the past few days about how to best maintain the pool so that is it sparkling clean but it is not that easy to be honest.

I am currently dealing with a couple of pool issues and I stumbled upon TFP and decided to create an account.

Hoping to know you guys better and learn from you all.

Thanks,
Priten

Hey Threpi and Welcome !!!

It’s a lot to take in at first. The worst part is undoing any bad advice / habits that got you here. None of us old dogs like new tricks. Believe me you are not alone and every last one of us feels you.

We also got you now.
