    Next year I'll be buying a place with a pool. Never had one. How much work is involved? Should I just get a nice sprinkler to run through?

    Thanks, I'll hang up and take my answer off the air.

    They have services that you can pay to set up the pool in the spring/summer/ and will shut it down for you as well in the fall. My friend has a pool and he says it's not worth the hassle.

    All the ladies of the shed are invited over for a sexy skinny-dip grand opening. But please make yourselves aware of...certain things before you arrive.

    I pay $90 a month for pool service once a week and usually have to just skim the leaves out for a few minutes before I get in :beer:

    They sweep it, check the PH levels and add chlorine, skim out the leaves, empty the skimmer basket, make sure everything is working properly :dontknow: 20 bucks per visit and they are out there a half hour.

    Contrary to what @Danas Boyfrien said, Mexicans do not do pool service, it's a white person gig so you pay a premium

    Your local pool store will teach you how to backwash your pool. Just make sure you know if it's a sand, d.e., or cartridge filter.

    Those shallow pools heat up too fast. You'll be buying a cart full of ice blocks next month

    There's a ton of good pool care videos on youtube. I'll give a go at doing it myself. If it's a pain I'll hire somebody.
