I've had an above ground pool before but not in a long time...I do recall just tossing chemicals in it trying to get it right and sigh often not...anyway that was years ago and I'm glad I found this forum and am planning to take your pool school because boy do I need it. Anyway, my question is this we will be filling the pool tonight or tomorrow and I tested our water out of the tap (using AquaCheck pool and spa test strips) and this is what I got:
PH end pad 7.2
ppm Free Chlorine 0
PPM total alkalinity 40
PP stablizer 0
My question is what do I need to put in the water first thing after the pool is filled before we use it?
I will be using the 3 inch chlorine tablets and 3 inch Arm and Hammer Tablets in floating applicators.
We have the 16 feet, 48 inch high Intex metal frame pool with the pump that came with it.
