    My crystal clear pool!

    Been a bit of a rough go at times since I started opening the pool this year. It had not been covered and was green swamp. Moreover, nothing I tried that had worked in the past was working now. I had bought an Intex SWG hoping that would help but no way it was going to do it alone. After a partial water change and a lot of bleach, I got the pool to start clearing. Then I did a little work with borax for the PH and played with the stabilizer level a bit ( it was way low after the water change). The final step, even though it's frowned on around here was the addition of a small dose of water clarifier. The result is pictured below. Got a little more work to do with the vacuum but I'm pretty happy right now. Chlorine, PH and TA levels are stable and the water is as clear as I can remember.
    Regards,

    Thank you. Now if it would just warm up enough to swim. Crazy weather here in Georgia. We are just now getting warmer temps.

    Nice!!! We're also in GA.....disappointing temperatures so far!
    Normally by now, the pool's 85-90.....right now, it's a pathetic 78....
    Ok when the family comes to visit from England.....but far too cold for us oldies.....we're fair-weather swimmers!
