I just had a 12' above the ground installed and I have questions.
How do I know how many gallons of water my pool contains? The pool guy couldn't tell me This is key to putting chemicals in it.
The pool guy also said to go to the pool place with a water sample to be tested so they can sell us what we need. I was told by many of you in another thread on this forum to not go there and post my questions here instead.
I have chlorine tablets from Costco, shall I start with them when I know how many gallons of water in my pool?
Then I bought the stabilizer (Cyanuric acid) at walmart. Shall I put that in next?
Then for the ph, what shall it be? I saw at walmart products called "PH up" and "PH down", do I need those? Is baking soda ok to raise PH if needed?
Then total alkalinity, not sure what that is.
I have the good taylor test kit that was recommended here.
Sorry for all the questions and thank-you so much.
