    I'm from Montana so I only have a few months to use my pool. I bought 14" steel frame above ground pool. It hold 3,440 gallons of water. We put sand under it to crate a cushion and level grounding. The pool is currently full and I've been on every Internet site to figure out how to keep my pool clean. I have the chlorine tabs, ph increaser and oh decreaser and some shock as well as some test sticks. I don't even know how to read the strips. I have area on my pool where I can enter chlorine tabs... How many do I use? When do I put this all in? And how do I know how much? I put one tab in tonight and I will run for 8 hours so we can swim tomorrow. Thanks

    Welcome to TFP!

    Another good resource is the ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry. This boils everything you need to know about managing pool water chemistry down to one page.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
