As my title says, I've read a lot of posts. I've read through Pool School, and looked at the Pool Math Calculator, and googled more than my browser could handle. I still just don't know understand what to do. My roommate and I bought the Intex Easy Set 12' x 36". The pool will be for 2-3 adults, no children. We would like to keep it as natural as possible, (combined with as easy and cheap). It is set up and full of water now, but we have not even turned the filter on yet (and it's been raining so we haven't been in it yet either). I know I need a test kit, but really still don't understand the chemicals I need to buy, when and how much to add. This might be a dumb question, but can't I just get a floating dispenser and let that do all of the work?
I've never had a pool and I'm trying really hard to read and learn, but I've always been more of a "this is what you need to do" or a visual learner.
Is anyone willing to help me?
