    Red face Late opening but I have to say thank you

    I had a late opening this year, just opened (June 5th). I decided to redo my plumping, so it took some time to complete. However, I need to say thank you to all on this forum that helped me out last year. Without your help, I wouldn't have had such a successful opening. All I had to add was a bit of stabilizer and chlorine.

    BTW, I found 10% liquid chlorine at Walmart for $2.50 per 128oz. What a steal!

    I still need to vacuum the bottom a bit, but the water is 90% clear and PH and TA was stable already. I do have one small leak on my back flow joint, which I'll need to fix. Not sure what happened there, but without further ado, pictures!

    Sharp looking pool AND a VERY sharp looking aerator. Will you use it to cool the pool this summer??

    Most likely. The weather is already calling for 100+ degree days. The pool is in full sun for around 9 hours, so I'm assuming the water will get up to around 85.

    So aeration can cool the water in addition to raise the pH?

    Yes. The act of evaporation cools the water.

    Plus it's fun to play in. The ball value also acts as a pressure control. Fully open it reaches to the middle but if I want a small fountain, I can open it half way.

    It especially cools the water if you run it at night.
