    Default pool~

    I just may be stuck, but does anyone know any sites or stores that carry
    chlorine and other pool chemicals a little less expensive than the regular
    stores?? We just moved into a rental with a pool and the shade side has some
    green algae! YIKES~ I know I need to fix this now or it will turn into a HUGE

    Any other pool tips and/or tricks??

    (And yes, kids have already been swimming!!! They are little fish!)

    Thank you much~

    We have an above ground pool, it's only a 21 foot round, but you can't use
    regular clorox in it, it isn't strong enough. You have to buy shock at a
    pool store or Wal-Mart has it. If the pool is really bad, then use 2 packs
    to start. Then you have to vacuum the pool. Don't let anyone swim in it
    for 24 hours after using shock, it'll bleach them and their suits. Be
    careful of what you wear when you put it in the pool, if it splashes, it
    will bleach whatever you aree wearing, I found that if I dissolve it alittle
    bit in a bucket and then pour it in the pool, I don't have so muchending up
    on the bottle of the pool to be vacuumed up. You can buy a product at
    Wal-Mart that keeps algea from growing over the summer, you pour some in
    once a week. Plus you have to check your cholrine levels and PH levels once
    a week to make sure they are ok. A pool is hard work ...I know, it's my
