    Smile Pool newbie

    Hello everyone. I set up my first pool today. It is a round above ground vinyl pool, 10 feet across, and 23 inches deep, 1102 gallons. For this type of pool using the TFP
    method, how much bleach and the other grocery items should I add to this type of pool each day? or each week? Thanks!

    10' round vinyl pool, 23" deep, 1102 gal. above ground, RX 600 filter system, 65 watts, 1.7 amps.

    Welcome to TFP!

    There is an article in Pool School that explains a method for temporary/seasonal pools like yours. I think in the How To section.

    Pool School - Guide for Seasonal/Temporary Pools

    Oops, simultaneous post. It's a good read, and not intimidating. I think I'll be pointing people to this guide more often - not every new owner of a small AG pool is receptive to the standard advice of "read five articles in Pool School and buy this expensive/complicated test kit NOW." Don't get me wrong, it's good advice, but the new owner of a small pool may find it overwhelming initially.
