    Pool chemical start-up 101 Please

    Just set up new Intex 14' x 42" AG, vinyl, cartridge filter pump. First pool ever. Filled with hose. Water has no chemical in it. Water has a greenish tint. Been filled for one day.

    Was told by pool store, to add 3/4 gallon of shock treatment and then bring them a water sample to discuss chemical plan. I'd rather hear what people have to say here.

    The pool water test results is where everything begins and ends. Post up what you have and we can go from there. You will do best not to get in the middle of our advice and the pool store advice......they will not be the same
