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
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
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.
Tell her to check with one of the local pool supply places. If she can find
out from the previous owner who they used, they will already have a
background on the pool and any chemical balance problems.
I live in Ca and own a pool, like whoopee ya know?
the first year of ownership I checked the chemical balance every week,
added chlorine, brushed the sides & bottom, the whole nine yards.
By the 2nd yr of ownership, it was checking the chemical balance once
every 3 months & vacuum brushing the sides & bottom.
By the third yr of pool ownership, I bought a creepy crawly on ebay
and a couple of floating chlorine dispensers.
No more manually vacuuming-sweeping-brushing the pool, no more futzing
with chemicals yada yada.
Add 3" jumbo chlorine tabs to the floater in the pool, pump & creepy
are on a timer, and pool maintenance couldnt be easier.
Buy a 5 gallon bucket of the 3" jumbo tabs for $75-$80.
If your sis can buy a house in 'Frisco, she can afford a monthly pool
