    Re: New to pool school!

    Welcome Shultz06 Do you have a test kit (which one??) and can you tell us more about your pool and equipment.

    First you will need liquid chlorine (bleach is fine) and granular stabilizer. The stabilizer needs to go in and dissolved to protect the FC.

    Read this: Pool School - ABCs of Pool Water Chemistry

    and this....Pool School - Guide for Seasonal/Temporary Pools

    Holler back with any questions

    addendum: Please add your state/province to that thingie over there <------ (While I can figure it out, Skippy my other half is easily confused) Thanks

    We just set our new above ground pool and finally filled it with water. I'm not really sure what to do from here. Please help!

    Welcome to TFP!

    I would swim.

    And add your state to your location because I am not one of the five people who know where post falls is.

    Fill in your signature (instructions) so we know how to help. Different types of pools (many exist) require different actions.

    Maintaining swimming pool chemistry basically requires control of just two things: Safety (sanitation) and friendliness to people and infrastructure (pH). Everything else regarding chemistry supports those two.

    Our new trouble free pool with deck construction still in progress:
