hi all, happy to have found this site.
we just set up our new pool this weekend. It is to be used as physical therapy for my dog and my husband recovering from knee replacement. the only level spot on our lot was the garage. So, it is in our garage and consequently not exposed to sun, much debris or the weather. We were advised that bromine might be the way to go since our dog will be using the pool as it is less irritating to the skin, eyes, etc. We want to know if we start with chlorine, can we switch to bromine? Should we just start with bromine? the start up kit we bought is chlorine but it has no instructions. Please provide if possible a detailed step by step process as to how we go about adding the proper chemicals now and how we maintain it. How often should we run the filter and for how long? How often do you change the filter? Anything else you experts think we should know, please advise. we intend to take this pool down in the Fall and store it to be used again next spring when we can level a spot outside. Thanks for your help. regards, emme
