    New in Oxford, Ohio

    Hello all. New forum member and pool owner in Oxford Ohio. I just and a 33x18 above ground installed for my wife and daughter. It's filling up as we speak. Every pool search I do refers to this forum so I'm looking forward to learning from everyone here.

    Oh what fun you are going to have with that pool! It is big enough to get a good workout in and just to laze around in!

    Have you ordered your good test kit yet? Oh I know the pool store will test your water for free BUT is it really free if you have to buy all kinds of stuff to "fix" your water? nope

    Here at TFP we teach how to take control of your pool to keep it clean, clear, and safe for your daughter using a good test kit and chlorine. Look at my siggy below to find the test kits.

    I can't wait to see pics of your pool!

    Thank you for the warm welcome. I am on a mission to make this thing last a long time. My daughter is 9 months and she loves playing in the water. I'll see if I can attach a photo. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1433099196.335807.jpg

    In regards to the test kit, I am pretty sure the store only sent test strips. I have seen the chemical tests at the pool store. None of them are what you have listed in your Sig. I'm thinking I'm going to go with the Taylor kit.

    Thank you!

    The hose slipped out during fill in last night so it's not full yet. I did not let it run all day in fear of over flowing. Turned it back on about 5:30. Hoping for a full level before bed so I can bleed the pump and filter and get that dude rolling.

    June 1 in south west Ohio brought us a high of 60 and rain. Good week to open the pool. Hahaha Last week it was in the 80s while they were installing it.
