    Esther Williams Install Scheduled for this week

    So we have the installation company lined up to do the install of our 30' Round pool on Thursday. We are excited to finally get a pool!!!!!
    I previously posted that we purchased it used off craigslist a couple weeks ago.

    I ordered and have received the TF100XL test kit!! I also have on hand 3 bottles of bleach that I purchased from Costco the other day. I still need to pick up some Baking Soda and Borax.
    Is there anything else I should have on hand to get my pool started?

    Thank you and look forward to your reply.

    Do not randomly stock up on products that start with the letter B. Odds are you will never need borax or baking soda. Test your fill water (CH, pH, TA) and you will have an idea of what you are starting with.

    You will certainly need stabilizer/CYA/cyanuric acid ... so buy 30-50ppm of that ... and of course you will need bleach. Anything else depends on test results when the pool is filled.

    Where you find it the cheapest

    The stuff at Walmart gets good reviews and is what I have used.

    Hey Tarra!

    Glad to hear you are on your way! I hope to be soon myself. Please send me the info on the local installers you found. I would greatly appreciate it!

    Also, what did they quote you for your isntall if you don't mind my asking?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    I get my Stabilizer at WalMart in the pool aisle. It's really good and I think I pay anywhere from $12-$15 for it. Can't remember for sure but it's not that much.

    I don't even use borax or baking soda. I, of course, added borates this year so I did use it but if I didn't do that, I probably would have never had to use it. Just bleach and stabilizer.

    I will be using the same installer as Tara (thanks for the info Tara!) and my install will (hopefully) begin next weekend! (provided my pool arrives in time!)

    I can't wait to see Tara's install. I hope it goes wonderfully!
