I'm so glad I discovered this excellent site. We just bought a Fast Set inflatable pool (info in my signature) and figured we'd use salt water, but we had no idea maintaining a pool is so complicated!! I've looked at a lot of the pool school info, but I'm still not sure what to do. We're filling it now and the water is very clear (so far), but we have no idea what to do now. We got a bag of pool salt and a salt water maintenance kit (from Aquarius). We've added the algeacide, but not any salt yet.
We realize from this site we need a top-quality water test kit, which we're about to go get right now. But what do we do next? How do we add the salt, and how much? I believe the right salt level we want is 200 to 400 ppm. Is that right?
The pool came with a filter (with cartridge). I guess we should turn it on? Do we also need a salt water chlorine generator? Is there anything else we need? Are there some good articles on this site or threads that would help us?
Any help would be most appreciated!!
