Hi all, Sherri here. Just decided to get an above ground easy set pool from Intex and now that it has arrived I want to be sure I maintain and keep the water in great shape. I am by no means new to the pool world but I am new to being the person responsible for the chemicals and testing. Look forward to any seasoned advice that can help me do it right and the most economically.
I got the 12 ft round by 36" deep intex easy set pool. I am hoping to get it set up maybe tomorrow. I already do have a 5 way test kit that checks bromine, chlorine, ph, alkalinity and acid demand as well as a pool starter kit from In the Swim that came with Clarifier, algaecide, stain away, starter sorb sponge, pool shock, and two complete care pods to use weekly?? I think the pool holds approxmately 1700 gallons. It will be filled partly from my well but also from the river water as I know better than to pump that much thru my well all at once.
Any advice on what other chemicals I need to pick up tomorrow would be greatly appreciated and the most cost effective products too. Thanks a bunch
