We just moved into a house with a salt water pool. We've never had a pool before but would like to do the mainenance ourselves. Can anyone recommend a good book on this or a website? Thanks.

How old is the pool? Do you know who put it in? If you do then call that company and ask them for any guide books on repairs and maint. We did not put our pool in but the previous owners did and when I've called Tahitian (the co that did put the pool in) they have been more than helpful and gotten us all of the manuals and books we have needed for all of the equipment.

Go to your nearest Leslie's or Robertson's store and bring a water sample. They'll get you started. You should know what type of filter you have.

Our pool is about 4 years old. I called the pool installer (Foley Pools) and they are coming out to give us a lesson on maintenance.

Thanks for the suggestions.
