    Thank you TFP! First opening in 3 yrs with clear water!

    I'm converted, thank you! In years past we have opened the pool to a murky swamp, what a difference!

    Here are the stats:

    FC .5
    CC 0
    pH 8.0
    Alk 70
    CYA 60
    CH 220

    Pool water is clear, a few leaves, etc on bottom. Since we aren't dealing with a total mess on our hands I feel a little wary of how to proceed - would sincerely appreciate any/all advice as to what to add (bleach obviously) and the order. Can I add MA at the same time as shocking? Do I even shock the pool?

    And one other question, this year worms found their way into the pool and drown and have left tell-tale staining on the floor - I have vacuumed and brushed but to little avail, how can I get the stains out?

    Many many thanks!

    There is no need to SLAM the pool but you need to get FC in right away. I would bring the FC up to around 10 ppm and HOLD IT THERE until your worm stains are gone. You can add muriatic right after that or right before....either way.
