Hi all! Ive purchased a 24'x52" round above ground and upon looking for education came across this forum.
I hope to be installing my pool over the 7/9 weekend.
I'm intrigued with the simple use of just regular chemicals such as bleach, muratic acid and borax and Im trying to fill my brain with info so I can do this correct the first time!
Ive never owned a pool so this is all new territory for me and any hints, tips or recommendations will be greatly appreciated!
Thank you and I'll be a regular reader I am sure.

Welcome. I'd suggest you go ahead and buy a good test kit. You'll want to have that before you get your pool up so you can start it out right. I have the Taylor K2006C. The TF-100 is also a good one that's highly recommended. Congrats and best of luck on your install!
