I have a quick question. I don't plan on opening my pool for another 6-8 weeks; however, the temps are getting up there (I'm in MD @ 70-80F this past week) and I'm noticing a little bit of green algae forming a ring close to the surface. My equipment is winterized and my cover is on.
Is it ok to add Clorox to a diluted 5 gallon bucket and circulate it around the surface through my mesh cover (I fully plan on hosing it down as well to prevent whitening the navy blue color). And, how much should I add? Is this effective in keeping the algae at bay or should I consider opening earlier than normal. I'm not a big fan of the pollen and helicopter seeds, which is why I wait until mid to late May.
