    How long to warm up??

    33x17 5ft deep current temp 65 degrees, temps daytime 80 night temp 55, how long until the pool is mid 70s temp? We are in Atlanta, so the weather should keep getting warmer too.

    You're probably looking at about the middle of April. May be sooner but probably not much.

    You can stop SLAMing your pool when you pass the OCLT (You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & You have .5ppm CC's or less) & your water is clear.

    That's about the size of my pool and temperatures here in el paso. I started heating the pool yesterday morning and took 8hrs to heat from 60 to 85. This morning though, the pool is back down to 70. It'll take a couple of weeks; I agree w mid April time frame w/o heater.
