    Comps for recommended kits are in Pool School.

    The fav around here is the TF100. Link in my sig. It's the best bang for the buck (you get more of the same Taylor Chemicals), great service, and the owner is here all the time helping folks with their pools.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Re: new pool. question is the kit.

    I recommend getting the XL option right now, because you'll be having so much fun playing junior chemist that you'll burn through a ton of reagents the first couple weeks and ordering it now saves shipping costs and downtime.

    I'd also recommend a speedstir at the same time. No one who has one regrets buying it.

    And welcome! THIS is the kind of early post we love to see! Someone who wants to take control of the pool chemistry!

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
