    Complete drain and fill

    Hi all,
    New user here. Been reading for the last week+ Lot's of great info. I just did a complete drain and am refilling our plaster/concrete pool. At the rate it's filling it should be done sometime tomorrow afternoon. The pool was setup as a chlorine pool and will probably remain as such unless there is a good reason to convert.

    I looked on the board but didn't see anything that specially was to a drain and fresh fill (off municipal water) for a chlorine pool. What are the steps and order I should do them in to get the pool ready for summer?

    Thanks in advance and for all the interesting reading over the last week.

    Ignore the "Seasonal/Temporary" part. Same rules apply. pool-school/temporary_pool_guide

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Welcome to TFP!

    The first thing is to get test results for PH, TA, and CH. Also, add 2 ppm of chlorine the first evening, and start adding CYA.

    Thank you for the quick replies. I'm still kind of new to being a pool owner and maintaining it myself so I really glad I found this site.
