New pool owner here... We bought a house with a pool last September so this will be the first time we've opened a pool. I've been reading that people are opening their pools early this year due to the mild winter and warm spring we are experiencing in the Northeast. I've read that if you leave the cover on too long with the warm weahter, you can get algea growing under the cover.
I live in Southern New Jersey and the temps have been in the 70's for the past couple weeks and they are expected to stay above normal until at least the end of March.
I don't want to open the pool yet since we stand no chance of swimming until at least May, but I was wondering if it would be a good idea to put some tryclor tabs in my floater and put it in the pool, under the cover. The pool was closed by the pool store last year, so I'm not sure what they put in, but I'm assuming it is what ever is recommended.
