Just opened pool today. I can test everything in 1 hour after the pump runs except the CYA, right? Or you guys just wait 24 hours for everything (makes more sense)?
Pretty sure the water is reasonably clear (cover still on, will be off in a few hours- long story), probably a yellow tint from all the yellow pollen. Usual organic debris that needs filtering & netting etc.
Mostly posting this to start my own thread so frustratedpoolmom sees it; she & others walked me through a difficult 1st start up last year, so I’m still a rookie at year #2. I shouldn’t require as much attention this year.
Brand new sand filter. I will not miss that DE filter.
