    Re-filling pool

    We just had one of the legs on our AGP replaced today because it was apparently cracked during the install last year. During the process we had to drain the pool and now we are filling it back up. Here in Virginia the pollen is crazy right now and there is a thick yellow scum on the surface of the water. My question is should I hook the pump and filter up now and start running it without adding chlorine just to keep the junk out of the pool, then add bleach when the water temp gets around 60? Or should I just wait until the temp comes up and fully open it then?

    If it's full, you need to get it balanced and running. That includes bleach and stabilizer. With that pollen load in there, you'll be looking at a green swamp in a couple days otherwise. too-cold-for-algae-wrong-swamp-to-sparkle-in10-days-50-t55062.html

    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!
