    New Pool Owner Oklahoma

    I'm from Tulsa inherited an above ground pool and I have been struggling to get it up.
    Cannot afford a "professional" if I could I would sure them call.
    I've enlisted others to no avail many said they would come but never showed up. (how rude) I was going to pay them too.
    I think the filter or system I have is very older. I can't see the setting on the machine. I'm so thankful to whomever started this site
    as I've seen so many things on here already.

    Welcome to TFP!

    If you don't already have one, you will need a good test kit to properly manage your pool. Here is a comparison of the Recommended Test Kits.

    While you are waiting for your kit to arrive, here are some resources to give you an overview of managing your pool using our methods:
    1. ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry
    2. Chlorine CYA Chart
    3. Recommended Pool Chemicals
    4. Recommended Levels
    5. Pool Math

    If you follow this advice, you will wonder why you ever considered having to hire a "professional" pool guy. There are just two chemicals I primarily use to maintain my pool: Liquid bleach and muriatic acid. It really can be that simple.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
