Opening the pool quite late... first time opening this pool (new house to us).
Does CYA matter at this point?
16x32 (8 ft deep end)
Vacuumed and pulled as much leaves out as possible for about 5 hours today with another person. Added 5 gallons of liquid chlorine this evening. Will test for CYA and pH in the morning. Pump running on recirculate because flow slows to a trickle after about 30 minutes and want the water moving overnight (I think)
Hoping water is clearer to see bottom somewhat
Test levels -> Buy chlorine and adjust pH if necessary
Vacuum to waste
Open up filter and clean sand as shown in deep clean video (PSI even after backwash seems high ~16-18, reaches 22 after 30 min)
