    First opening

    This is the first year opening my pool . Previous owner opened it for me last year .

    TA 80
    Ch120
    PH7.5
    FC1.5

    Is it poss to have FC left from last year? Fill water tap tested no FC . I closed late sept used tarp cover. I brought it up to slam level b4 closing last year. Water is clean and beautiful thanks to TFP .What steps should I take first . I am currently using chlor-brite dichlor to bring up FC Due to purchasing SWG in offseason that will be installed after Memorial Day .

    Is the water clear?

    If so, it sounds like you closed it properly.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Yes possible. I open with chlorine from last season all the time. Especially with a tarp cover. Less like if one were to use a mesh cover.
