Ok. Fire Dept filled our new AG pool (18ft round- 52" high) last night.
Based on what I have read here, I would like to go BBB, but I got a box of "starter chemicals" (shock, etc...) that came with the pool--no instructions of course.
I have been all over this site today and quite honestly, I'm dizzy. You guys really know your stuff, but it seems most of the threads I've read are having to do with pools that are already up and running. I want to get this right from the very beginning...and here I am...at the very beginning.
It's going to be 99 here on Saturday and my kids are dying to get in this pool.
My questions are:
What do I need to do to get up and running safely by Saturday (48 hours) if that is even possible? The FD actually filled from a hydrant, not the truck, and the water was pretty clear, but I have no test kit that I know of. It could be buried in the bottom of a box, but I looked pretty thoroughly and found nothing.
I've read here that there are 3 recommended test kits. I'm game for any of the 3. Where can these be purchased, besides online and being sent to me in the mail? I know that I need one asap, right?
I'm looking forward to really digging in here and getting this right. I just need to get going, if you know what I mean.
Your responses are appreciated.
