Hi- we are a family of 3 that bought an above ground 30x15 pool from namco in the spring. It's been up and filled with water ( from delivery service) since the end of april.
we have finally finished digging the trench, running the electrical and bonding the pool/filter. This week it will be inspected. We have had a solar cover on it this whole time.
So....I am looking at a boc of chemicals, and daughter who keeps asking if she can go in yet and a hubby who is only home on weekends LOL I have never owned a pool in my life, I am confused when I hear that it needs to be backwashed LOL!
Ok- well the water is pretty crystal clear. There are a couple of sunk leaves and what look like chesnut shells on the bottom but other that that it is calling us
Do I need to put chemicals in before we go swimming? Do we swim then test the water?
ANY help would be great!!
