If you want to take the time it takes, yes, you can. You do have to check
it every few days, or it will get ahead of you. There's not a lot to
keeping up a pool, but you do have to learn what chemicals and when, and you
have to check it regularly.
I had a chance to meet the pool person, before I closed on my house
and as a first time pool owner I did not continue the service. It
seemed to me, he was taking advantage of an elderly lady, by not
fixing things - like the pool filler valve/ broken and flooding the
yard. ( he was to maintain and repair.. )
With a little research; coupled with opinions of others I've managed
to keep a decent 11K gal. pool.
Check to see if a Community College offers a course in pool care.
