Hello from Massachusetts! Our family decided that with summer camps canceled and the parents working from home, we needed some form of entertainment to get through the summer. Thankfully we were able to source an Intex pool at a reasonable price about a month ago. There is much to learn about maintaining the pools and I am confident this group will be a great resource!

Greetings from a few clicks south !! So you have 2 options for your pool depending on how you would like to look at it, its kinda on the fence with the size and could go either way.
^^^ this is the way for smaller pools.

To treat the pool as a permanent pool, you will need a reliable test kit investment. See Test Kits Compared. Then ABCs of Pool Water Chemistry will be how you go about it. The ABCs are great to understand either way.
