I recently found this site. Looking for answers. I bought an intex 15ft x 42" AGP (no frame) from amazon. It has not arrived but I want to be ready when it does. I have no idea what to do, how to start, etc when it comes to the water, chemicals, etc.
I have leveled the area where the pool will go and laid old carpet down for a soft "mat". When the pool arrives I will inflate the top ring and begin filling up the pool with my garden hose. I have very hard water and thus have a soft-water system. This is the water I will be using.
I need to know what I need to get to keep the pool useable. The pool comes with pump and filter but does not come with any chemicals or test kits. Please help me get started on what I need to get, how to test, etc, etc. Any help is greatly appreciated. I am not looking to be a pool expert, just the basics that will get me buy for the least amount of money.
Thank you in advance.
