    Putting up Above Ground Pool - shock?

    I'm currently filling our Intex Above Ground Pool. This is our third year. Just started the TFP method last year. I had a bit of algae at the close of last season, and I was wondering if I should just shock it right away to be sure we're starting clean? I haven't run any numbers yet (still filling), but want to get ready.

    Welcome back! More than likely you will need to "SLAM" (link below). You might want review the TFP Pool School - Opening Your Winterized Above Ground Pool first though. Nice to have you back with us.
