    THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

    Just opened the pool this weekend. Took the cover off and this is what I found.

    Followed the very simple and wonderful advice in this forum and this was the easiest pool opening EVER.

    BT,

    Wow! That's pretty nice! Remember to give yourself credit.

    BBB is all about learning pool water management and not letting someone else tell you what to do. You've obviously learned very well.

    Speaking of management, pool numbers:

    FC: 5 - liquidator up and running.
    CC: 0
    TC: 5 - measured after 24 hour pump run.
    TA: 70
    Ph: 8.2 - YIKES!
    CH: 350
    CYA: 20
    Borates: 30
    Temp: 70 degrees



    all in all Im very happy at those numbers.

    You probably know this but PH is high and CYA is low. I would also raise borates, even though it is alright where it is, it will tend to go down over the course of the pool season.

    If your home is like mine, it is the wife that wanted a pool. I tell her go get them out herself.







    Then I go get the leaves out.

    Lucky for me the pool came with the house we bought so I didnt have to shell out the dough. Yeah, I've said that a few times. Wasn't pretty.
