    First Pool

    Hello everyone! I am new to pool ownership and wanted to find out more info about cleaner, safer, and less expensive methods of maintenance. We are setting up a Coleman 18 foot circular/48 inch deep pool. I hope to learn much from some of you who have been doing this a while.

    Welcome to TFP!

    Job One is to get one of the Recommended Test Kits to properly manage your pool.

    While you are waiting for your test kit to arrive, here are some resources to give you an overview of managing your pool using our methods:

    1. Begin with this article: ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry. This boils everything you need to know about managing pool water chemistry down to one page.

    After you have a good understanding of the ABC's article, the following articles will give a little more information on the pool chemicals we recommend and the recommended levels.
    2. Recommended Pool Chemicals
    3. Recommended Levels
    Gold Supporter, TFP Lifetime Supporter, 26,680 gal Plaster IGP 3.5 - 10' depth / Attached Waterfall Spa, Manually Chlorinated, Triton Sand Filter, 1.5 HP * 1.1 SF = 1.65 SFHP 1-speed Pentair WhisperFlo WF-26 Pump, 400K BTU NG Teledyne Laars Series One Heater, Polaris 360, Test Kit Comparison, Chlorine/CYA Chart, SLAMing Your Pool, OCLT
    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
