Well two weeks ago there wasn't much on my cover here in upstate NY so i took the cover off, filled the pool up and hooked everything back up. Outside of an minor ongoing suction side leak (i will get it figured out this year) i am in good shape ... water was clear. I tested the water and CYA didn't register nor did chlorine and the ph was a touch low (7.1+-)
I have added stabilizer and chlorine and borax and after a few days have the following readings .. water is crystal clear but there are some debris still in the pool .... i am waiting a week after adding stabilizer before i vacuum.
56 degrees (up from mid 40's.... i'll be in by 5/15 )
outside of bringing the ph up a wee tad to 7.5 should i do anything?? i had outstanding results last year and once i got up and running added bleach every day or two and muriatic acid once in august and that was it for the year
