hey, been absorbing as much of the great info as i can, but i saw something about outgassing that i didn't understand.
new pool (finished in december and opening it up now), new pool owner. the builder started the chemicals off last week with salt, stabilizer, baking soda, and bleach. so now i'm waiting for my tftest100 kit to be delivered so i can start managing things. here are the test results (pool store), fwiw.
anyway, water temp is 59 and i have a solar blanket on it to see how long it takes to get the temp up to 70 or so (and make sure the heat pump is working). when i started reading threads about keeping pools open thru the winter, i saw some talk about taking the cover off to allow outgassing.
is removing the blanket occasionally something i need to worry about while i'm trying to figure out these initial steps? thanks!
