    Woohoo! First pool re-opening is gonna be easy!

    Wont open it for 2-3 more weeks. Water temp is 62 but we have another cold front coming in.

    Nice out today so i took a peek under my domed cover I made when I closed. Water is still crystal clear!

    FC is 12ppm, CC clorine is ZERO

    Ph is 7.6.

    I dropped the water level down below the return, and dumped about 3 gallons of bleach in my pool when I closed... in October. Brought it pretty far above shock level. Vacuumed it, and covered it.

    All i will have to do to re-open is uncover, top off the last 1.5 ft of water, get the pump going, and vacuum.

    Awesome! Thanks to the advice I got here....

    For my first re-opening, I have a troublefree pool!

    to all the newbies reading this... LISTEN TO THE EXPERTS HERE! They know what they are talking about.
