    Talking First Time Pool Owner

    Good Day Everyone,

    We just yesterday completed installing and setting-up our above ground pool.
    We are complete newbies to pools, so we will be reading a lot and asking a lot of questions.

    Oue set-up is a 21' x 12' aluminum sided above ground pool with a depth of 52".
    We have a Hayward Powermatrix pump, Aqual Coastal sand filter, and a Raypak gas heater.


    One question to the members who would know more. On two of my attachements, one on the return to the pool and the other on the line coming out of the skimmer, there seems to be a minor leak, drips every 2-5 seconds. Is this normal? What would be a solution to stop the drips (caulking, silicone, ect...)


    Thanking everyone in advance for all replies and comments!!

    No test kit. Do you think I would need one? We have a pool store 5 minutes away that tests the water for free, with a detailed printout....
