What chemicals do you have to purchase for a new 33x53 above ground swimming pool?
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, anddirt away for the depth that you want, you need to take a 4 foot2x4, and tape a leve…l to it. Then you need to slide, and smooth thesand that has been laid. **Note, it is easier to level it once youhave the sand laid. . Continue to check it in all directions. When leveling, it isalso important to know that where your supports go, (the track andthe wall of the pool) is the most important part that needsleveled. The inner part can be eyed for levelness, and smoothness.You will need to lay your block, and then check with a string levelto make sure that all sides are level one across from theother. . You have to put sand on it and level with a rake. . After sod has been removed and sand has been placed in areaconstruct a square box out of 2x4 boards that are straight make box48" square place 2 more pieces between square equal distance apartplace 2 eye bolts equal distance apart on one end connect cable orchain to riding lawn mower. now starting on the high side to wardslow side drag across until level. Materials needed 3 2X4X8' 2 eyebolts with washers length of cable or chain and of course a ridinglawn mower or something to pull it with ( good luck ) . Here's how I did it: Take 4 metal poles (I used 3/4" electricalconduit about 2' long) and pound them in the ground in a square alittle bit inside the circumference of the pool. Take some stringand tie it off on the first pipe at the height you want the finalgrade of the pool, Then run it around the next pipe and then thethird 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 hangthem in the middle of each string. Pound the 2nd pipe down tillit's level with the first, then the 3rd till it's level with the2nd and the 4th till it's level with the 3rd. Go a little at atime. then check the diagonals. now grade the sand till it's justtouching 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 along time you may want to consider removing or adding soil toimprove the level. If it is a smaller, temporary pool you canprobably get away with using instant paver's or propping up theside that needs it with plywood sheets or something similar. Aspirit 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 4x4piece of wood and spun it around the stake in circles with a levelon top of it until the dirt was all level . A simple and extremely accurate way to determine if an area islevel. Fill bucket with water. Place the bucket next to the areayou want to level. Put a clear plastic tube in the bucket with aweight on top of it to hold it there. Suck the end of the tube andput the and allow it to siphon until it is full of water with noair bubbles. As soon as all the bubbles are out of the tube pick itup and you will note that the water level in the tube is the sameas the water level in the bucket. No mater where you take the tubethe level will stay the same making a perfect reference point forleveling the pool. In other words the level of the sand shouldalways be the same distance down from the top of the water in thetube. Level Ground is a Must For Above Ground Pools. You shoulddetermine were the pool will be located and always find the lowestlevel in that area and remove dirt to match that level. If youalways dig down to the hard ground before assembling an aboveground pool, you will 99.9% of the time never have to worry aboutsettling or shifting in the wall or legs that support the wall.Always for extra peace of mind put cement blocks under each legbrace. Get ground level, layout your bottom tract and mark eachfooter, then dig out under that marked area making the top of thefooter block level with the rest of the already leveled ground. Ifyou will take the extra time to prepare the base of pool wallsupport, 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 addchlorine to the pool. You will also have to test your pool water tosee where the PH is. Depending on the readi…ng that you get, youwill have to add PH plus, or PH minus to the water.

You shouldalso add stabilizer to the water. This will help keep the chlorinestay in the water for longer periods of time. Without it, you willhave 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.
