Newbie pool owner here with some observations/questions about Pool School.
First things first. I love Pool School and this forum. Great source of knowledge and experience both easily accessed and given. Thank you!
With that being said, I noticed some things I've learned randomly just searching other topics that I really wished I learned earlier in studying Pool School.
1. The storing of pool chemicals - it's listed what chemicals you may use for proper pool care but nothing on its proper storage. Such as unsealed liquid bleach and muriatic acid containers. Potential killers just sitting together side-by-side unless you were told that's a big no-no. Shouldn't this be a fairly major safety issue covered in Pool School? Like a big bold hard to miss link saying "Stop and read this first!" I would of had both sitting side-by-side in the shed on the ground thinking I was safe. Instead, I would have found a shed full of dangerous gases upon opening the doors. Especially in this intense Florida sun.
2. Muriatic Acid - How to properly and safely add to your pool. Even better would be a video demonstrating this both for above ground and in-ground pools. How about the fact that precise muriatic acid amounts are given in PoolMath but the measurements really shouldn't be followed too precisely. And that it should be dosed with a ballpark guess when pouring instead of pouring into a measuring vessel and then into the pool.
I thing these things and probably more have become a "common knowledge" issue when they really aren't common knowledge to a pool newbie.
I'm sure that there are more I'll notice as I spend more time reading posts.
Or did I just completely miss these as a "read first" topic somewhere?
