    --- How Long To Wait??

    I have just a little green on the liner with clear water at present. Water temp is 50 degrees today with the extended forecast calling for highs in the mid 50's with a couple of days in the 60's to good friday. Good friday is a day off for me and would give me 3 good days for start-up. Should I wait and chance algae bloom or attack it soon as possible??

    If you see green, you already have an algae bloom ... as Richard320 would say ... Nip it in the bud!!!

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
