    first time pool owner

    Hi all, ok we are going need some help. we have the intex 15 x 42. We are going to upgrade to the 2000 filter. My first question is that a good filter for this pool. second we are filing the pool with tap water. The ph is at 7.0 what is my first step? Do I just put in chorine at this point? If so how much a day? Once I get going I think we will be ok I just don't know how to start. Thanks for you help

    Welcome to TFP!

    Can't really comment on the filter so I'll leave that to someone else. As for your water balance, we recommend adjusting pH first and then address chlorine.

    I would not use tabs.
