I just bought a 10 x 20 x 52 ultra frame Intex Pool from a guy off craigslist. This pool has a sand filter and SWG. The pool is being emptied, and I take ownership of it tomorrow, so I don't have the make/model of the sand filter or SWG. Although both are Intex.
I've been reading a lot of articles in the pool school and about testing and adding chemicals. What I'm looking for and couldn't really find is articles on how to set one of these pools up, and how to get started with chemicals in the pool from the get go and get it right. Most everything I've read is how to test a pool that's already going or that has had problems pop up.
I don't want any problems to pop up. Any advice, or links to good threads on how to start up one of these pools would be most appreciated.
Also, in the poolmath calculator there are two boxes in the left column underneath "goal." Is this for where I am at and where I want to be?
I should add that I am planning on setting this pool up on a concrete slab that was originally for an RV. The pool might overlap onto the clay dirt ground next to the concrete pad.
