    Pool Maintenance

    Anyone ever owned a pool and did their own maintenance? Or worked for a pool cleaning service? New to this and need a few pointers with mine.

    Don't try to blow it up like a balloon, it takes forever. An air pump is a must. Always flip the pool over towards the North for good luck when the water gets dirty and needs to be emptied. When it gets a hole in it, duct tape will always come through for you.

    Sometimes taking care of your own is better. No conversation or cuddling required.
    Oh, we were talking about pools. In that case...
    JUST LOSE BABY!

    Certified pool operator my advice is get a auto chlorine feeder and always check your alkalinity first. If it is off nothing else works. Oh yeah temp is pretty important cold water won't bond with chlorine just floats around in pockets
