    Newbie :)

    Being in GA it was only a matter of time before we fell to the "pool community" and invested in our own AGP- with that being said it looks like we get to put it up this weekend ( and are doing so ourselves). My biggest concern is chemicals - to start mainly chlorine. It's a 27 ft 54 in pool and I'm trying to figure out how much to add in the beginning. I'm grasping "adjusting" the levels but trying to determine how much to start off with is what I'm struggling with - any help would be much appreciated!!

    Welcome to TFP and congrats on the new pool!

    Most folks start with plain, old bleach from the grocery store.

    You'll need a good test kit. I use the TF-100 and I buy mine at TFTestkits.net. I think it is the best value, Pool School - Test Kits Compared
