I am a first time pool owner, we just bought and had installed last Sunday a 18' 54"deep round above ground pool. We bought it here at a local great escape store. I am in the western burbs of Chicago, so we are hoping to get a few cold water swims in before we have to close it up.
As far as equipment included here is what we got:
Zodiac Nature 2 vision Pro
Hayward 2HP swimpro voyager pump
Hayward swimpro filtration series.
Everything is new to me, so we got a starter kit and followed those directions, so far.
It seems there is not many people that like the nature 2 vision system here. As being a complete newb, I want to keep it simple as possible. I got some test strips with the starter kit, but I am thinking these are not the best for a balanced pool, so I am going to order the TF`100 (or whatever that kit name is that everyone suggests here)
So as my season is basically over I want to use this time to learn as much as I can. This nature 2 line seems to be a great escape brand. Is there other brands of chlorine tabs I can use or must I use there brand with the unit (remember I am newb) Because they seem pretty pricey at the GE at 24.99 for 2 sticks.
Well if anyone can offer up any suggestions or anything else please, do so. I have been reading the pool school stuff, its just alot of stuff thats over my head and I am a more hands on learner. So thanks for reading and hoping to learn lots so that we can have a balanced trouble free pool
