As stated I am a sever skeptic and would like the advice of another DIYer. Here is the background:
I purchased the pool new 6 years ago and installed it at a previous house. During that time I was plagued with algae and constantly had to change the paper filter. I took the pool down and kept it and just now decided to put it up again now at my current house. Now that I have finally got the pool installed (took me two months of leveling and grading) it is full and needs chemical. I filled it using county water from the garden hose. I took the sample to one of my local stores (Leslie's Pool Supply) and received the following numbers and a shopping list valued at around $300.00.
Can a newbie get a little advice, please?
