    Took the winter cover off

    and found crystal clear water!

    and one lone leaf that got in while removing the cover.

    Since the pump still isn't connected, I hope it doesn't take too long to get everything up and running. I'd hate to see this take a turn for the worst.

    side question Linda... does your Ipod touch reset your Pool calculator Setup items ? Mine erases all the setup items I enter (like which chemicals I use, which test standard I am using (TFP) etc...)

    Nope. Just checked it. I set it up last summer and all the information is still correct. It works like a charm and I used it every night last summer.

    Re: Took the winter cover off

    I'm dreaming of my pool looking like this after I remove the cover. A little scared though as I'm pretty sure we have a hole that may have let some of the nasty leafy water in this winter. Congratulations on a good start to the season!

    If the water level is high enough, turn on the pump and test the water. Post the results here and we will help you determine what you need to add.
