We "opened" our pool to a green swamp monster back at the end of March. Yeah, early, but when your cover disappears with the wind, well... Anyway, after almost 2 months of constant chlorine shocking and endless cases of beer and wine, I was about to give up because we STILL couldn't see the bottom last weekend and all my numbers except pH were sitting perfect and we were passing the overnight test. So I read and read and read and finally decided to build myself a little aerator to raise my pH without chems. OVERNIGHT, the bottom showed up! I was so extremely excited I almost jumped in the water myself! (It was way too cold that day at a whopping 60 degrees out and 70 in!) Now here we sit, 3 days into aeration and we are almost sparkling! I cannot contain myself. I never took a picture of my green swamp except for when the kids were so hot they wanted to swim so we let them...no worse then swimming in a lake since all numbers were good. Once it starts to sparkle, hopefully tomorrow, I will post the before and after. I just can't believe that a little think like pH was holding me back from sparkling.
