Well I finally pulled the cover yesterday and saw beautiful clear water. Maybe 10 leaves and lots of bugs in the bottom, but I was happy with it. I only checked Chlorine and PH levels yesterday and will do the rest today. CL was 0 and I did the pool math to bring it up to 5. PH was 7.5 so I left it alone.
I was only open for about 2 months last year after the build, and never did CYA where it needed to be. I will check that today as well. I know the liquid stabilizer is more expensive, but I plan on using that to start this year. Does the liquid kind register immediately or is like the powder kind and take a week to see on the test???
Another question is, when I put my "eyeballs" in, do you recommend using plumbers tape on those when installing?
Thanks in advance!!!
