    Brand new pool opening help

    Greetings and happy fourth of july

    We recently purchased an 18' above ground pool and set everything up. We are now at the point where the water level has to be and are ready for the next step. Ok.....what r my next steps? I have a hayward pump and filter and all chemicals that i believe i will need for a while. We are not too familiar with terminology so please be gentle on us. Thanks in advance for any assistance that u may be able to provide.

    pool-school/temporary_pool_guide is a pretty good guide.

    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!
