New to the forum and already a big fan. I have been reading as much as I can.
Bought an Intex 16ft x 48in pool on summer clearance recently. Looking to set it up tonight and use it a few times before the season is over and then probably break it down and store it in the basement for the winter.
Bought a TF-100 test kit, but it won't be here till Monday. Bought some Clorox regular unscented bleach and some 20 Mule Team Borax so far.
Located in CT.
1) Any recommendations on a test kit that I can buy locally that will be useful for starting up until the TF-100 test kit gets here?
2) Any tips that you wish you knew before you started your first pool up?
3) Can anyone point me to a list of start-up instructions when it comes to pool chemistry? Ideally, starting with day 1.
This is our first pool. Looking to get our feet wet before we think about putting in a larger in-ground pool in the next few years.
