    Help Me!!!

    I just purchased a 22ft. pool above ground from Walmart. Just found out I need to put chlorine in the pool. What other supplies do I need to keep the pool safe for my grandchildren.

    Pool School - Guide for Seasonal/Temporary Pools should tell you what you need to know.

    Some stabilizer aka Cyanuric acid aka CYA, some bleach, and a small test kit will get you started. The test kit will tell you if your pH needs to come up or down, and that will determine what else you need to add.

    Other worthwhile pool school articles are
    Pool School - ABCs of Pool Water Chemistry
    Pool School - Recommended Pool Chemicals What does what and how to add it
    Pool School - PoolMath How to use poolmath top figure out how much to add.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
