Just came back from vacation in Florida and brought some warm weather back with me so anxious to get the ugly winter cover off my pool that has alage blooms growing on it. I know the pool wasn't closed properly so will take some work so anxious to get started but know swimming weather in IL is still quite a ways off. Currently have the sump pump working on removing the water off the cover.
When is it suggested to get the winter cover off and start opening the pool? I checked the water as cover has a hole and dipped thermometer in and it read the water underneath at 52 degrees.
I know I want to start before water hits 65 degrees if i recall because of algae. This is our first year opening the pool as just bought the house in August last year.
thanks so much!
