New pool owner with an old pool.
We've been through the stress of measuring/ordering/installing a new vinyl liner*, getting the pump up and running (plumbed it backwards the first time - "in" the return and "out" the skimmer!), now we're having fun with all this chemistry. Still not sure I'm reading my test kit correctly, either.
Between neighbors, websites, pool stores and this incredible forum, it's becoming information overload and I have no idea where to start.
Is there a "flow chart" or procedure I could follow? I'm sure I can find the answers to individual questions, just feeling lost in the procedure.
What's first? Go ahead and shock the pool or focus on pH?
*Sometime, ask me about the snake that got under the liner.
