Try this stuff: www.pristineblue.com.
Can order on-line. Uses a tiny amount every 2 weeks. Simplest, most effective thing I’ve ever found. (By the way, it’s made in Nebraska.)
[mage lang=”en|fr|de|en” source=”flickr”]pool chemicals bleach baking soda[/mage] questions on quick set pools with chemicals?
I have read you can use baking soda and bleach? How does that work compair to buying chemicals? What is the best way to keep a pool with sparkeling blue water? I have a quick set pool that is 12 x 36 thanks
thanks! Oh the pool shocker, you use it once a week right? Do you mix the whole bag or just part of the bag?
I have had 3 of the pools in the last 8 years..bleach will eat the blue patterns off of the bottom liner and can eat the rubber up in the small pump..They sell a bromide tablet dispenser for around 4.00 and a large jar of the tablets for around 10.00..a large jar lasts 2 seasons easily, and after said and done, iss cheaper than bleach without doing damage to your pump…
Have your tried this for maintaining your swimming pool?
I just purchased a quick set pool for this summer! Excited to finally have a swimming pool – even if it isn’t a real big pool. Anyway I was looking online and found where you use baking soda for the alkalinity of the pool, bleach for the chlorine & ph increaser Mule Team Borax. I am thinking about trying this to save some money on chemicals. Have you tried it? Did it keep your pool clear or did it turn green and cloudy?
The pool box said it comes with a maintenance kit…not sure what that is. Need the hubby to get the box out of the car so we car open it up. I hope it is a pool water tester. If not I will purchase that to make sure the water is at the proper ph & chlorine level.
Bleach and liquid chlorine from the pool shop are the same thing, just slightly different in strength. The bleach is weaker and may contain scent.
Baking soda will do the trick for your TA but bear in mind how much you’ll need. You’ll probably find it’s cheaper to buy in bulk or hit the local pool shop where you’ll find it in 8kg pails (approx 16 pounds). One box you’ll find at the supermarket won’t even put a dent in raising your TA.
The maintenance kit you ask about will be the vac pole, vac head, hose, pool brush, test kit, net and probably a thermometer.
