    Welcome back. Always good to refresh your memory on the TFP Pool School - Opening Your Winterized Above Ground Pool page. After that, your first order of business will be to lower the pH back to the mid 7s, add some stabilizer, and also some bleach for your FC. If you find FC dropping quickly at first, like the article says you may need to SLAM, or perhaps just keep your FC lightly elevated for a couple days. After that, resume normal recommended levels and wait for that water to warm-up.

    Hope that helps.
