    1st Chem Puurchase help

    As a disabled Vet - I bought a house and it came with a pool, very good therapy.

    I had a new pool liner, pump, filter installed.

    Question I need to buy chlorine tonight or tomorrow for 1st time in Lansing MI. what do I buy?

    My test strip: PH 6.2, Free CH .5, Alk 40ppm, Acid 40

    I am reading the pool school, but I have hard time I must make a list or I forget once I leave the house.

    Thanks all - lots of smart people here on this site!


    pool size is 18,000 (I think)/IG / vinyl liner/ Sand filter/1HP Hayward pump / pool is 20 years?? / AquaChek Smart test kit

    Hi Daniel! Thank you for your service, Sir!

    Your list needs to start with a good test kit because test strips are not a good source of information. You can compare those kits here Test Kit Compairson

    Next on the list is to learn this: How to chlorinate your pool.
