    Hi everyone. My name is Jim and we just recently purchased our first pool. It's the Intex 24' round metal frame. Thanks to Barb (sunsoaker) for posting this link on another forum. My head was swimming trying to figure out what I needed to buy chemical wise to keep the water clear.

    After finding this site and spending a couple of days reading, I headed to Wal-Mart for some bleach, and baking soda and my water has been easy to maintain.

    I've still got lots to learn and am looking forward to reading lots more here.

    Thanks for a great site.

    Welcome - happy to hear another happy user with bleach and baking soda I am in the "build" stage right now and fairly new to the forum myself. As a prior pool owner thinking that pools were fairly easy, I can't wait to use what I have learned on this forum for the new pool. There is definitely a wealth of knowledge here and a willingness to share
