With the Chlorine shortage that I've been following, someone posted a Wal-Mart in my general area that has pool chlorine 10% on the shelf.

    First Timer - New Pool Purchase

    Hi all - I've been lurking a bit over the last few weeks trying to learn as much as possible. We're getting close to ordering a pool and I was looking for some advice/feedback. My wife and I like the 15x30 oval size and we believe this size will fit our setup the best. We definitely prefer to...
