    Look what I found when I pulled my cover off (pic)

    Almost crystal clear water !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And, I owe it all the this forum, and that awesome "pool calculator" ! I have been spending the last month bringing up all my chemicals to proper balance, and running my filter about 3 hrs a night. This prior season maintenence payed off BIGTIME. I did a quick vacume, and I am done !
    Tha last step is a box of 20 Mule Team Borax, as my PH is a bit low, and that it. I am SO proud of my self (and my neighbor up the street who also opened his in-ground "SWAMP" this weekend is jeleous)

    I basically started testing my water right after "ice out" which was like the last week in March. My chemical levels were all ZERO. I basically had pure drinking water....
    6 gallons of shock, 170 oz. of stabilizer, and just running my filter a few hours in the afterenoon, and I have perfectly balanced water ! I am now a firm believer in "getting ahead" of algae in the spring, well BEFORE pool opening, not after..

    I can't tell you how good I feel! I am a new pool owner, and last season REALLY tested my patients with pool water management. Here in NH last year we had a very mild and wet summer. Perfect for accelerated algae growth. I must have drained my pool water level 10 times last season from excessive rain. My LPS could not keep algaecide in stock fast enough. I battled algae ALL SEASON. I did make some newbie mistakes, but thanks to this forum, and just learning my pool, I am better educated this year ! I got the algae boxing gloves on, and am ready if need be !!
