Hello everyone, we just bought a house and it came with an above ground pool with a torn liner. We're fixing it next week and I'm looking forward to getting started with all this great advice. I had a pool as a kid and don't remember my dad doing much maintenance or testing, probably the reason my eyes always burned! I have two kids of my own and want to avoid that for them. All my internet searches about doing your own maintenance kept coming back to Trouble Free Pool and after reading pool school I'm on board. I have to be honest though, everyone I talk to looks at me like I'm crazy when I tell them I want to use bleach, wife included. Years of marketing I guess, the chemistry makes sense.
I'll post my initial test readings as soon as I get them, I know I'll need to add some FC, probably CYA right? I've read some other first timers post, people on this forum seems really helpful and kind, looking forward to taking part.
