    It sounds like you have things well in hand. You probably don't need to change the sand. If you changed the sand after the conversion a year ago then there is no need to change it again for several years at least. Here are some notes on pool openning that you might want to read.

    One recommendation I would make is not to wait. By the first of May, I'd bet your pool will be green. 60 degrees is a good rule of thumb for opening.
