We took the cover off early and it was dirty and a bit green, started with the bleach but were still waiting for pool guys to turn on filter and officially open up pool.
At this point my husband wants to learn how to do it himself, because we left for 8 day trip after pouring a bunch of bleach in, not sure if it did any good.
While we were gone we had unusual hot weather for early may and when we got home pool was bad. They opened the pool at appt next day and it took me weeks of bleach, nonstop filtering, sweeping, back flushing, etc but pool is finally shiny clean.
I just wrote on here to say a huge thanks because at times I wanted to give up and buy regular chemicals, I came back here and reread pool school and other posts. Got me through the battle.
