Hi Everyone, brand new to pool ownership and this forum. I have read through pool school and have been coming back regularly over the last week or so. Seems like a great place to learn.
So far my pool is open, water looks clear, and I have vacuumed. My testing kit should be arriving today (unfortunately I went with Poolmaster 22260 before reading this forum, so I will try to give it a shot). I don't have all of my pool details, but I can tell you it is about 20,000 gallons, vinyl, and is a desjoyaux pool. I had never heard of this before, after talking to someone at the pool service company they told me to "throw away everything you might have read about pools". So I guess my question is: is all of the information available on this website still applicable to me? I'm sure the chemical information is the same, but I am just curious since there is no backwashing, the filter is not above ground, and essentially just uses the nets, etc.
I also have 3" tablets and a floating dispenser coming today. After being "schooled" I suppose I should be returning these?
