Hi, I'm new here. I have a 12 x 36 round easy set pool my nephew gave me for my two little ones. (3 yrs. and 2 yrs.) After finally getting it to hold it's shape and water, I now am clueless on how to keep it clean. I have the pump it came with but to be honest, I don't think it's very good. I also have the garden hose vac but again, not too sure if it's doing what it's supposed to or I am not using it correctly. It seemed like stuff would go right through the bag so I attatched a flexible tube to it to try to remove smaller debris. I have a test kit that said 5 in one but I don't see anything on it about cya. I've had problems with algae, I had one of those beginner kits with the test strips and apparently wrong water volumn information which of course means I was putting too little chemicals in it. but it seems to be under control (sort of) -that is until we get a couple days of rain and then it's green again. Could you recommend some useful tools and or tips for me? Mind you, I am a mom of 2 toddlers with a small budget and they keep me very busy. Thanks for your help. If it helps at all, I live in Central Florida.
