Before finding this site I was feeling so overwhelmed I was getting sick to my stomach over having made the "mistake" of buying an AG pool.
We had already bought an above ground pool from a local dealer before I discovered you guys and spent 2 days reading up and totally ignoring all around me. So, although it is too late to take care of all the tips and tricks that would have been helpful during the purchase, (and saved us a ton of money) I can now peruse the site and learn from you all and hopefully not make too many more beginners mistakes. (At least we decided against the frog system, though!)
We are going to use the BBB method- you from the forum have convinced me that this is the way to go (my husband remains skeptical). The TF100 kit has been ordered and should be on the way.
We are leveling the site tomorrow afternoon with the help of a transit and friends bobcat and plan to set up the pool by this weekend if all goes well with the levelling.
Although I have read and reread pool school and many of the posts, I am still unsure as to what chemicals I should have on hand for when we first fill the pool- plan on using the garden hose so it will probably take a while for the pool to be filled.
Definetely stopping by Aldi's for some bleach. And Lowe's for the muriatic stuff? Should I have baking soda on hand? Any other ones that I should definetely have?
Thank you so much,
