I'm thinking about opening the pool soon (first time I have done it myself). I am in Ohio & we had a very mild winter here so the temps never got super low. We didn't have a cover on it and the water is totally black. Not even pond green like when we bought the house... I mean REALLY black. Also, I think we might have had a problem with mustard algae toward the end of the last season which I never treated.
As far as chemicals go, should I just SLAM it like normal? Should I follow the mustard algae procedure? Something else? I'm worried at this point that it is going to take a long, long time to clear it up & I want to start the season off on the right foot. I don't want to waste time and money experimenting when some of you have so much knowledge!
Thank you so much for any advice/opinions!!!
