Need some help and advice
My sister in the SF Bay Area CA is buying a home with a pool. She doesn't have a clue about pools... how to maintain the pool / water etc.
Some people say buy some tablets, buy an automatic moving cleaner. Others say get a pool service. What should she do ? What tablets are these ? Are these tablets expensive ? is it easy to do by oneself ?
Is it easy to maintain a pool ?
Would any one with experience, pls shed some light on this.
Thanks Linda

The best thing she could do is go to a local pool supply place and they can teach her how to test the water and adjust the ph and chlorine level. It's going to require about an hour a day to vacuum the pool (depending on its size) . If she has trees near by, there'll be the problem of leaves in the pool to deal with. The chemical adjustment process is not complicated. An automatic chlorinator will relieve the need to monitor quite as much, although the pool will still need to be shocked with super chlorinization every 10 day to two weeks still.
