    Opening Pool for Season

    Hello All!
    It looks as though winter is finally gone...84 degrees here in East TN...finally NO more SNOW! I just pulled the cover of our above ground pool and water was pristine! YAY! Now I just want to make sure I keep it that way...I need a little refreshing on start up-

    I am currently filling the pool up from where it was drained for winter- Once I get it filled completely I will hook up pump, etc and start circulating-
    1. Do I go ahead once circulating and vacuum out and scrub down. There are very few leaves and debris on bottom pretty clean
    2. How long after it is circulating do I need to get my first water sample 24 hours?
    3. I will be testing CYA, FC, CC and PH- and will check others as needed?
    4. Once I get my numbers I can start topping up stabilizer and chlorine

    As always..I just like to double check with you guys before I start to make sure I haven't forgot anything

    Happy Spring

    About an hour or so circulation is all you need. Everything else looks like you are on the money!

    When testing the CYA do I need to let my water sit and get a little warmer than the temp it is now- it is probably around 60' degrees or so

    I would let the sample come to room temp or put it in your pocket for awhile to warm it up a bit. 😎
