New Pool

Postby Guest » Wed 10 Jun, 2009 20:06

hi,
We just bought an easy set Intex 15' x 48" pool, one of the blow up kind,,, and I have NO idea how to start the chemicals or what I need or how I maintain it... I have gone everywhere in this town for help and it's been very frustrating the lack of customer service and knowledge I have received.

So far we put a shock treatment in and that's it. It's been u for 3 days. Now what? I'm confused!!!!

THANKS!!!!

The key is to get a test set to test the pH value and chlorine. With that you can test the most important in order to avoid major water problems. If you do not have the circulation of water, it is a good idea to purchase a small circulation pump to do that. Write a little more about what you have done.
I am from Denmark, but the pool teatment :wink: are similar throughout the world ...!
