    Rookie pool guy

    Nothing makes a rookie pool guy feel more welcome than a thread dedicated to his the Beginners Guide to Seasonal/Temporary Pools! It is like Water Quality for Dummies, and I am a dummy!

    Got my 14X42 Intex and the whole family is enjoying it immensely. I am trying to head off the inevitable science project the water will become without proper care. I am looking to learn the BBB method and apply it to my 3K gallon mini.

    Hope the shock treatment I started off with last night has settles down, temps will approach 100 today!

    Having done construction and service for 4 pool companies in 4 states starting in 1988, what I know about pools could fill a couple of books - what I don't know could fill a couple of libraries :-D

    LOL! So far, so good, no need to slay the whirling algae blooms with my light saber!
