    Unhappy second season pool owner, first season alone

    We bought a pool last year, went great! Local pool store closed down, so I don't even know where to start to open... I have uncovered it,( the water was pretty clear, with a green bottom), filled to full with water, connected all equipment and hoses, shocked with 3#'s of shock it and have let run for 3 days... I am hoping you guys could hold my hand through this season(maybe both hands)... What do I do next?

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Why 3 pounds? Why not 1 pound? Or 10 pounds?

    The cornerstone of what we teach is to only add to your pool what it needs bases on accurate test results.

    So, the first thing you need to do is invest in one of the Recommended Test Kits and post up some numbers. We can not really help until that is done.
