So bear with me as I don't know anything about pools...anything.
I have a 12' x 30" Intex metal frame pool that I set up a number of weeks ago, had one last year (the easy set) but had a similar problem with algae and just let it go.
So far I have tried to be dilligent and followed the instructions on some kit that the pool store sold me and here I am again with Algae.
To date what I have added to the water was a half of a jug of conditioner, three treatments of 2 oz of granulated power powder pro plus shock, and a number of twice a week treatments of what I presume to be additional shock in again Power Powder something...the twice a week was only 1 oz each time.
And to make it worse I only have strips (which I gather aren't that great) for testing purposes.
I don't want to sink a ton of money into keeping this thing up, but I also want to get it clean for my kid.
I have no clue about pools so anyone who can be as basic and exact with what I have to buy/do would be appreicated.
