So glad to find this website!
I bought my above ground, 24 ft round pool mid summer last year. I spent hundreds of dollars, weekly trips to the pool place taking in water samples, purchasing multiple chemicals and other assorted additives only to figure out that I was making it much too complicated.
This spring, I was directed to this site by a friend at work, have stocked up on the three B's and am hopeful that I will have a much more relaxing and enjoyable summer in the pool - and crystal clear water to go with it!
Thanks for the wealth of information!
