I am not new here, but this is my first post. We set up a 8000 gallon Intex ten days ago. I was searching for some tips and tricks when I found this forum. I read and read. And then read some more. I read through post after post. I was a little nervous to pour bleach in my pool, but I just did it and never looked back! Ten days later, I have a sparkling pool and a happy family. I sincerely owe it all to reading Pool School and great moderators answering the same questions over and over. I need a pool vacuum that is arriving this week, and I am trying very hard to keep my pH down and continue to lower my outrageous TA. Otherwise, I am swimming in my (almost) Trouble Free Pool. I didn't know pool water could look so beautiful.
