Hello all. I have been reading on this site for 2 weeks or so, and am so overwhelmed with all this, so please bare with me
Bought a 15 by 48 intex pool. Right now its still in the box in my living room but will be sit up tomorrow. From what I have read here I think I will go will the bbb method, I have read and read and even took notes, but im still confused.
When the pool gets set up and filled tomorrow what needs to be added or done first to the water? We will be using city water. I know I need to go by a few gallons of liquid bleach, and baking soda, and borax to have on hand, but what is the first few steps that need to be done after filling?
We are going to walmart to buy a test kit and I know its not the greatest test but we will invest in the better kit eventually. We are worried about not being able to keep the water regular and safe and have already spent a lot of money (on a budget). Do I need to buy shock or what other stuff to I need to have "on hand" for this adventure?
When we bought the pool we didn't even think about what was needed to be done to the water. I put the info I have right now in my signature like everyone says. I will be able to see more about the pump when we open the box tomorrow.
Not sure if it makes a difference or not, but only two adults will ever be in this pool but we have no clue as to where to start or what to have on hand or what to add once the pool is filled. Thank you for any and all help.
