  • At the pool supply store, ask for a mini vacuum used for things like smaller pools and spas. Also get a chlorine floater & chlorine tablets. And a skimmer as well for quick cleanups.

  • Another thing that works... cause my parents used to do this....they would put bleach in the will fade a liner but it will keep the water clean...and its cheaper than chlorine.

  • when we used to have it yes u put clorine in it you can get one of them things with the clorine tabs that float around .put a lil normal clorine in it and you can also buy a cover for it .go to the pool store and ask the people what all you can get for them pools there is alot of stuff for them

  • Are you running a filter? You should run the filter 2 hrs per day. Use chlorine in a floater or skimmer.

  • Dont waste money on chlorine tabs...they don't work well for blow up pools. Get liquid chlorine and a test strip. Test daily..heat is the #1 enemy of pool chemicals...add chlorine as needed acording to test strip.

  • Get a test kit to check what you need. It will tell you if you need more chlorine, a ph increaser or decreaser. Bleach is not the right thing to use on a pool It gets so dialuted that it doesn't work. They make shock 'n' swim for a couple of bucks that works.
