    New AG pool owner. NEED HELP!

    I own a new pool. It is AG Intex soft sided 13,500 gal 24' round.
    I am brand new and need help.
    Do I go for Baquacil or Chlorine?
    I have a cloudy pool now and am trying to get rid of it. I have Flocced it. How to I vacuum this cloud up with a garden hose vacuum? Please help!! I have 3 young boys waiting to jump in.

    Welcome to TFP!

    Chlorine 100%! Take a look at some of the threads in the Baqua conversion forum and you'll never consider it again.

    Do some reading in Pool School to get an understanding of water chemistry.

    Agreed! Next step is to get a home testkit. Don't trust the pool $tore! Pool School - Test Kits Compared

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

    Yes. It is the cheap garden hose style that came with it. Doesn't really do much. The little mesh bag fills up very quickly.
