    Nice water you have there!

    I am going to shoot you a couple of links so YOU know what to have on hand when your pool is filled. ASK any and all questions to make sure you are doing things the best way.

    Pool School - Start-up New Plaster

    Print this one out and keep it by your test kit:

    Pool School - Recommended Levels

    To help with your shopping list......I would also get a white plate or such to hold the test tube in front of to help with the color matching.

    Pool School - Recommended Pool Chemicals

    To help with the math. This link does all of the work for you! SO neat!

    http://www.troublefreepool.com/calc.html

    Print this one out also.

    Pool School - Basic Pool Care Schedule

    I hope I have not overwhelmed you. Just take it a step at a time and ask questions as needed!

    Thank you! Hopefully we can get this pool finished in between periods of rain over the next couple of weeks.
