    First Time Opening

    I'm finally open!

    Uncovered the pool weekend before last. Water looked perfect (besides being 35 degrees)! I was a little worried about what I would find under that cover. My FC was down to 4.5 from 11 when I closed on the first week of October. Temp was up to 57 on Sunday.

    I don't really have any questions at this point. Mostly posting out of excitement. For those that are curious, here are my stats as of 3/14

    FC 2.5
    CC 0
    CH 175
    TA 80
    CYA: unknown (It was 60 when I closed. Figured a little lower after raising the water level)

    I threw in a pound of shock to boost FC and raise CYA. I will do an actual CYA test this weekend. I plan to grab a few pounds of baking soda next time I go to the grocery.

    Congrats on opening to a clear pool.

    You do not need any baking soda, so don't bother buying any.

    TA looks good and is right in range. Congrats...

    Some years I've found that my CYA disappeared after winter. Last year, it did not. Always check it before you add.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
