    **NEW** member looking maintenance, chemical, etc help for above ground pool

    New pool owner here.... I HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT POOLS ANDROID NEED HELP!!! looking for help to keep my pool clean and swimming ready all summer long. We've had this pool since June but our pump failed and broke, so for two weeks I've been patiently waiting, it arrives tommorw!! I will be opening in from scratch have since I had to drain it due to pump failing.
    I'd really like the in and outs of chemicals, what I need all around and what I need daily and weekly.

    Welcome to TFP! Good to have you here

    I like this article as well for starting from scratch. TFPC for Beginners

    Be quick and order a test kit for $70. You'll save the cost back in less than 2 months vs. listening to a pool $tore. TFTestkits.net

    And get some chlorine in that pool. We cant suggest a maintenance dose until we know more about your pool.
