What would you like to do?
Chlorine: either in the form of tablets(99%) or liquid (12.5%). OR Bromine but you still should use some liquid chlorine even with this. Muriatic Acid, CYA = cyanuric acid/conditioner Other items you may need or have to use depending upon how you maintain your pool: Soda ash, algaecide, tile cleaning soap, water clearifier. etc., etc.

Unless you had the pool installed with a bottom drain there is not a drain on an above ground pool. You'll have to pump the water out using a sump pump or siphon it out …using a garden hose. Please note having a bottom drain in any pool does not indicate that it is an actual drain as in house plumbing. The word "drain" or "main drain" is used most likely for lack of a better term. The only way to drain any pool is to use a portable pump and pump the water out. k
Level Own Lawn for Pool It can be done. We just did it. After clearing all the sod, and dirt away for the depth that you want, you need to take a 4 foot 2x4, and tape… a level to it. Then you need to slide, and smooth the sand that has been laid. **Note, it is easier to level it once you have the sand laid. Continue to check it in all directions. When leveling, it is also important to know that where your supports go, (the track and the wall of the pool) is the most important part that needs leveled. The inner part can be eyed for levelness, and smoothness. You will need to lay your block, and then check with a string level to make sure that all sides are level one across from the other. You have to put sand on it and level with a rake. After sod has been removed and sand has been placed in area construct a square box out of 2x4 boards that are straight make box 48" square place 2 more pieces between square equal distance apart place 2 eye bolts equal distance apart on one end connect cable or chain to riding lawn mower. now starting on the high side to wards low side drag across until level. Materials needed 3 2X4X8' 2 eye bolts with washers length of cable or chain and of course a riding lawn mower or something to pull it with ( good luck ) Here's how I did it: Take 4 metal poles (I used 3/4" electrical conduit about 2' long) and pound them in the ground in a square a little bit inside the circumference of the pool. Take some string and tie it off on the first pipe at the height you want the final grade of the pool, Then run it around the next pipe and then the third and forth, but at each, be about an inch or so up the pipe. Then do the diagonals. Then get 4 (or 6) string levels and hang them in the middle of each string. Pound the 2nd pipe down till it's level with the first, then the 3rd till it's level with the 2nd and the 4th till it's level with the 3rd. Go a little at a time. then check the diagonals. now grade the sand till it's just touching the strings everywhere. That's as level as you can get it without a transit. Well, it depends on the pool. If you plan to have it there a long time you may want to consider removing or adding soil to improve the level. If it is a smaller, temporary pool you can probably get away with using instant paver's or propping up the side that needs it with plywood sheets or something similar. A spirit level will be able to tell you how level the ground is. we put a stake in the center of the pool site and cut a 4x4 piece of wood and spun it around the stake in circles with a level on top of it until the dirt was all level A simple and extremely accurate way to determine if an area is level. Fill bucket with water. Place the bucket next to the area you want to level. Put a clear plastic tube in the bucket with a weight on top of it to hold it there. Suck the end of the tube and put the and allow it to siphon until it is full of water with no air bubbles. As soon as all the bubbles are out of the tube pick it up and you will note that the water level in the tube is the same as the water level in the bucket. No mater where you take the tube the level will stay the same making a perfect reference point for leveling the pool. In other words the level of the sand should always be the same distance down from the top of the water in the tube. Level Ground is a Must For Above Ground Pools. You should determine were the pool will be located and always find the lowest level in that area and remove dirt to match that level. If you always dig down to the hard ground before assembling an above ground pool, you will 99.9% of the time never have to worry about settling or shifting in the wall or legs that support the wall. Always for extra peace of mind put cement blocks under each leg brace. Get ground level, layout your bottom tract and mark each footer, then dig out under that marked area making the top of the footer block level with the rest of the already leveled ground. If you will take the extra time to prepare the base of pool wall support, everything else will be a breeze putting together.
This would probably not be a good idea, the problem would be that after having dug the hole and having successfully assembled the pool, you would have to fill it with water be…fore you back filled around the outside of the pool. The problem lays in the fact that should you ever have to empty the pool to repair it the sides would want to cave in. Also what is the pool framework made of will it weather the conditions of a constantly damp underground environment?
depends on how much you put in it is 15 min to 2 hours but if you put in more then you should it will be longer because it the chlorine has to evaporate
Depends on quality and size
To chemically treat a new above ground pool, you will have to add chlorine to the pool. You will also have to test your pool water to see where the PH is. Depending on the… reading that you get, you will have to add PH plus, or PH minus to the water.

You should also add stabilizer to the water. This will help keep the chlorine stay in the water for longer periods of time. Without it, you will have to add chlorine much more often.
With a tape measure.
the closest you could come would be a UV system However in my experience most people that use it still end up backing up with chemicals.
you can add them in any order but DO NOT mix the chemicals they can cause fires the best bet is to test the water see what you need and add it to the pool one at a time then r…etest you may have to add chemicals several times in the first week or two until you get enough of a build up to sustain a clear safe pool. good luck
sperm,feecis,paprika,not sure what else mate. Dont own pool
Yes. a snake can go about anywhere it has a mind to. They climb trees, go up drain pipes to get on a roof. It surely could climb a step ladder to get into the pool. It more th…an likely wouldn't want to if chlorine was present.
it depends. you can make it as long or wide as yoou want if you have enough space.
Depends what is right for your needs and price range.
You can buy from any reputable dealer check the link on this post.
Absolutely, just like an in ground pool, leaves, bugs, etc can get into it. A pool cover is just to protect the pool water from those sorts of things.
Above ground swimming pools can be purchased at many places online. Some of these online stores include eBay, Amazon, Clas Ohlson, PoolStore UK Ltd. and World of Pools.
