    Open for business

    Opened the pool for the season at last. The effects of raising the chlorine levels high before covering last year is as follows.

    CYA - 20
    FC - 4
    pH - 6.8

    Water is crystal clear. So right now raising the pH. Should be a trouble free season.

    BTW for anyone interested, Walmart is carrying liquid chlorine by Pool Time. $2.50 a gallon. Stock up everyone

    Nice to see some FC at opening! Usually means you'll have an easy start up after opening. I've seen a few folks with a bit lower pH at opening as well. How is your TA level? Make sure you know that before attempting to adjust pH.

    Would you say you have a Troublefree Pool?
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
