I just want to say thanks for all the info! I have been scouring this site for the past week and have learned a lot! I think I'm willing to commit to the BBB method (it seems much more fool proof than what the pool store suggested).
We just recently purchased an AG 21' pool. My husband installed the pool himself (with some help from some experienced friends). We finished filling the pool last night and the filter and pump ran for a few hours. I know that the next step is to test the water, but since I didn't plan ahead I don't have a good test kit. (I just have the silly strips from the pool store)
I was wondering if the local Leslie pool stores would carry the kit you recommend? I can drive to one this afternoon and then at least start to raise the CYA this weekend to get it in tip top shape for our party next weekend. Thanks in advance!!
P.S. let me know if there is anything else I should do right away!
