    1st time pool owner

    I am about to purchase a AGP. I was considering perma salt, until I found this forum. What would you recommend for a new fill/start up?

    Welcome to the forum.
    What would you recommend for a new fill/start up?
    I assume you mean for sanitation and keeping your pool clear?

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    How big of a pool are we talking about? The short answer is that you want chlorine to keep the pool safe.

    Welcome! If you do use the TFP way you will have a clean and clear pool forever!

    -order test kit
    -fill pool
    -find good source of bleach/chlorine
    -buy CYA (aka pool balance or stabilizer) you can buy it at walmart
    -test water
    -post test results here
    -follow directions given to balance pool

    There you have it!

    Please go to the link below to read about what you need to now about keeping your pool clear. It is a LOT to take in so you will need to read it a few times. It will get easier over time.
