    Default Pool keeping for Northerners

    So the new place has an outdoor pool, and as a Yorkshireman then I'll be honest this is entirely new to me.


    Apparently there's a guy that comes round and fiddles every now and again, but what should I be doing.


    There's a net that I]ve been using to drag out a few leaves, but then there's a hoover type thing that starts clicking a couple of times a day, but doesn't seem to do much.


    Am I supposed to leave that attached all the time? It's a bit of a faff taking it off and out the pool each time I want to use it.


    Also, the hoover attaches to a flap on the side of the pool with a little clip.


    To get the hoover to do anything this needs pressing down each time, ie twice a day. Is that right?


    And finally, and it pains me to admit this, but the sea is really warm.


    The lakes are really warm. But my pool is fricking freezing.


    I can only assume there's a chiller attached to it, but is that normal???


    People at work are complaing that their pools are in the high 20s, mine is about 12 degrees at the moment.


    Which means it's not that relaxing, although motivates you to actually swim and not just lounge.

    There was a thread about this years ago with some good tips on pool-keeping from Avalon: http://www.enz.org/forum/showthread.php?t=5711
