    Post "Second" opening of the season

    We FINALLY went ahead and hired someone to open our pool for the season. We are first-time pool operators & the pool was worse than the average! A lot of money later, we were swimming...for about two weeks. We then lost electricity for a month, I'm sure everyone can guess what happens next! No pump equals nasty, green water, AGAIN!! I'm wondering (since it isn't near as bad) if we need to treat it again as we did for the opening? What should we do??

    Do what these people did: Recovering my old inspirational links - Page 2 The most recent link I posted is the last, and then you can move back in time by scrolling up.

    In short: they followed this technique: Pool School - SLAM - Shock Level And Maintain
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
