Hello I have been reading over the forms and I am so lost.
My mother in law bought a new house which came with a pool. She does not want the pool so we got it. We are leaving it at her house this summer and going to break down and move and do new liner next year. But the thing is we have NO clue at all what we are doing.
I have looked up online and cannot even find the filter type for directions. We had a friend come with us and said we needed this and that and this and that. So we pulled off the cover and lo and behold we found about 10 billion tadpoles and only 10 frogs. So hubby and I spend the better part of 3 hours using the skimmer and scooped out all of the little buggers. Then tonight we went and hooked all the hoses up and then started adding water to the pool. The water itself is not green and yucky like I thought it was going to be. It is just a murky color.
So we filled for a bit and then had to turn it off and we will go back tomorrow and finish filling. Now onto the hard part. WHAT DO WE DO NEXT???????
I have no idea what size the pool is. It is an above ground pool hubby thinks about 25K gal but still not sure. What kind of chemicals do we need. Now I understand having a pool is not for the poor, but right now I am having to do all this on a budget so if we can cut some corners it would be great, but I want to have it safe for my little monsters (who by the way are dying to jump into a yucky pool lol).
I know I am going to need Shock and chlorine and tabs and a floater thing for the tabs and algae killer and test strips. I was praying I could get it started and pick up extra stuff we will need next payday.
It is above ground round pool that is about all I know and hubby knows less than I do about it.
thanks so much
