I am in the process of filling my above ground pool. We are new pool owners and have no clue. I have tested the pH of the water. It is between 7 and 8. It was a paper test that I obtained from work. The water is still running, and it is getting hot in Texas already. I was afraid that algae would build up as we actually emptied the pool due to really bad algae. We scrubbed it and decided to start completely fresh. Should I go ahead and add chlorine? I have a large bottle of bleach and feel as though i need to at least put something in now....I really fear algae!
We have a 10000 gallon with sand filter and vinyl liner.
Any input would really be appreciated.
Also, we are looking for a test kit that the previous owners might have left, but will definitely get one by this weekend.
