intex round above ground 15ft/42" pool

Postby sunshine » Mon 26 Jun, 2017 14:58

i am about to fill this newly erected pool. It will stand unused but covered for one week before being used for one week by my three grandchildren aged 3,6 and 7 yrs. It will then stand unused but covered for one week before a further one weeks use by the same children. After this it will be emptied and stored until next year. Must I use chemicals for such a small usage? If I must what is the minimum I must use?

It hardly seems worth your while for such a short time. However I would suggest you should chlorinate the pool with stabilised chlorine to prevent unsanitry conditions and algae bloom

Don't forget to test the water regularly and keep the chlorine level up even when not using because if the chlorine level drops to low you will get an algae bloom making it unusable
