    New Pool -- Clueless!!!


    I purchased a 24ft round above ground pool and do not know where to start with the chemicals. It came with a Pool Breeze start up kit which included non-chlorine oxidizer, start-up and winterizing algicide, and metal removing agent. The directions say to add each of these items. It does not mention adding chlorine at all, I am lost. It does mention adding more non chlorine oxidizer weekly to shock it. Does this take the place of chlorine? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to TFP!

    You are going to need a chlorine source. They might not include it in the startup kit because you need chlorine all the time, not just at startup. You should read The Stickies section of this site for lots of background information on how to take care of your pool, particuarly the first one on BBB and basic chemistry.
