If you are filling the pool with water yourself and not having a pool maintenance firm do it, then you'll likely need:
· Calcium (via Calcium Chloride or possibly Calcium Carbonate if you need to increase alkalinity as well). This assumes that your source water has less than 300 ppm CaCO3 equivalent of calcium hardness.
· Bicarbonate of soda to get the Total Alkalinity to 80-120 ppm. After that, then it's mostly just adding chlorine and adjusting pH (with acid if you use liquid chlorine; base if you use Tri-Chlor).
NOTE: If you use Tri-Chlor (or Di-Chlor), you will be increasing your Cyanuric Acid (CYA) levels substantially over even one summer of use. If you do frequent backwash of your sand or DE pool filter (paper filters don't need backwash) and if you splash out lots of water, then the CYA level might be OK. Otherwise, 1 tablet of Tri-Chlor produces (in 16,000 gallons) about 2.5 ppm of chlorine AND 2 ppm of CYA. Di-chlor produces 1.5 times as much CYA for the same amount of chlorine as Tri-Chlor.
· Sodium Bicarb.
· Muriatic acid
· A floater (don't put your tabs in the skimmer)
· Taylor DPD Test Kit-- You'll also need to know how to make adjustments and the meaning of each reading. Test chemical levels before letting anyone enter the pool. Do not allow anyone in the pool for at least half an hour after treatment.
· Never Mix Chemicals!!!
· Run your filter pump as recommended-possibly 2-4 hours a day. Filter use will increase when used with an intex cover or solar cover, as air cannot circulate.
If you have not had a pool before, you should take a course in managing the pool--often offered through your local government.
Having a properly balanced pool is not difficult, but it does take work.
I'm the pool operator at our local YMCA and keeping an 80,000 gallon pool balanced is pretty easy, once you all the elements in place and know what you're doing.
Chlorine 1.5-3.5, alkalinity 80-100, pH 7.6-7.8, not 7.2, hardness 150-250, not up to 400.
You have to stay on top of it because the chlorine can go down in a matter of hours if no one properly checks it.
It may cause the peircing to get infected and/or start to hurt. i went swimming with a new ear peircing and it got infected as well as the diamond stud sank into my ear. this happens because of the chemicals in the pool.
yes, because its still a chemical that can irritate the tattoed part of your body. This is just from a simple point of view.

There is all sorts of fluff about when you can go into a pool with a new piercing, bottom line you need to use common sense and be sure if you go swimming it's in municipal pools or facilities that are properly maintained. I tell my clients they can go swimming the next day in the city facilities, but they need to wash the piercing thoroughly once they are done.
As far as I know there is no law against it. Pools are private enterprises and can(and do) make their own rules and by (boardwalk) laws. For example some swimming pools in New Jersey with appropriate secure lighting allowed night swimming, others did not. some may have required caps or shower helmets, etc. consult your swimming site!
Sanitation supplies like chemicals and pumps are essential for the upkeep of a new pool. Items such as toys, cleaners, and safety equipment are also wise purchases for one opening a new pool.
There are a lot of places to buy swimming pool accesories. Walmart has a lot of swimming pool accesories at unbeatable prices. what pool chemicals do i need Where Can I get top caps for Above Ground Pool ki oi i o i khjeraalani
You will need to add an amount of chemicals that is proportional to the size of your pool. The containers of the chemicals should tell you how much to add for the size of pool you have. It might be better if you take a sample of water to a local pool supply store, so that they can tell you exactly what you need for your specific pool. http://www.ehow.com/about_5390392_chemicals-put-new-pool.html
The most important things to have is the proper chemicals needed to keep the water safe. Other supplies you will need will be a water pump, filters, a vacuum and possibly lighting and heating.
After you add all of the chemicals that are needed (get your water tested at a pool dealer) usually the next day at the longest.
Are you talking about a pool? Or a Hot Tub? For a pool you need Chlorine, algae remover, and a pool disinfectant. I use a disinfectant called Kikz Pool cleanser and disinfectant.
A rusty swimming pool ladder is not so good to see in your swimming pool. I advice you to repaint your rusty pool ladder or you can just buy a new one.
