    Opening pool today

    I just added a gallon of 10% chlorine

    ally. 110
    CH. 200
    CYA. <30

    Water is a little cloudy. I don't have the pump running yet to circulate and get honest numbers. I know I need to raise CYA (targeting 30). Will do OCLT to see if I need to slam. We've been filling slowly with well water for 4 days. Should have full today and pump running later. I cannot wait to vacuum the dirt off the bottom. We do not cover the pool in the winter, so it gets a lot of dirt and leaves. image.jpg. Any suggestions?

    Looks good for just opening.

    I would have vac'd it first, filled it up, get pump running, THEN add chlorine to keep it from pooling and possibly damaging your liner.

    I don't have a robot vac. Have to bring up the water level first to hook up the pump to be able to vacuum.

    Sounds like me. I'm about to do some old-school vacuuming today myself.

    4 days later, vacuumed twice. Much better. Ready for it to warm up!!

    Very nice. Crystal-clear vision to the drains. Just what we like to see.
