I am in dire need of help. We just recently bought an Above Ground 8ft Round, 30 inch high vinyl pool that raises itself as it fills, which did not come with a filter. Being on a limited budget since I don't work in the summer, I am trying to find out the easiest way to take care of the water in our pool.
It was filled last week and started to become cloudy along with acquiring debri (grass, leaves, bugs lol) -- there were only 3 kids who used it, but since hubby decided we needed to mow LOL,-- it is now being drained. We would like to refill it within the next few days but I was wondering if there was anything I should do before it is refilled---i.e. = scrub out the inside, invest in a chlorine floater....etc.
Since funds are tight, (hence getting the pool to put in the backyard instead of driving to the closest one lol) any easy to follow help would be so greatly appreciated!!!! For example: What is the best way to keep the water clean and clear, and should the pool be located in a more shaded area if at all possible or sunnier location? And is a chlorine floater a good idea and should it be left in the pool since we don't have a filter or should it be taken out, esp when the kids are swimming in it?.......
Sorry about all the questions, but this seemed like the right place to ask them Thanks in advance for all of your help!
