    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Please add your pool details and location as described HERE to your signature as it will help us help you.

    You should not add what anyone tells you. You should add what you KNOW the pool needs. To gain that knowledge, you should likely spend some time reading Pool School (button at the upper right of the page).

    What test kit did you use? What were all the results?

    If you have no chlorine, then you certainly need to add some and bleach has the least side effects ... how much depends on your pool size and your stabilizer level (CYA).

    Yeah, what he said ^^

    We need to know the size of the pool. It's really no different than giving cough medicine to a kid - except we use gallons and the drugs use pounds.

    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!
