    Pool Opening

    When I closed my pool for the winter, I lowered the water level to about 6" below the skimmer opening. Was wondering how difficult this will make opening. I know that sounds vague. But, any advice on adding water? (I.e., adding chemicals, cleaning etc.) Thanks!!

    Filling the pool back up is simple enough. I like to top it off before removing the cover. That way everything is ready to go when the cover comes off. There will be some chemical balancing once you have it refilled. Make sure to run the pump for at least an hour or two after opening and before testing the water. Usually rebalancing is easy, minor adjustments only, though that can vary.
