So I just opened my pool last weekend and I figure there will be questions that come up pertaining to this, so I wanted to create a post for all of my opening questions so it will be easier for me to find in the future.
So far I have only had the filter running and I added some water but have done no tests yet (I've been too busy at work).
The water looks pretty good with the exception of some trash in the bottom. But as I pulled the lid off of my skimmer, I noticed that the white portion of the skimmer was green. Part of the skimmer lid is exposed to the weather as the cover only makes across half of the skimmer lid. I didn't notice any green anywhere else in the pool...just the skimmers. I know I need to get my tests done first, but is this something to worry about?
Another issue I have is my concrete obviously settled and my brick coping around my steps had become loose. So loose I could pick up a chunk of about 8 bricks (I'll never go with brick coping again by the way).
