    above ground opening

    Thinking about opening in the next week or so in upstate South Carolina. Checked under the winter cover and the water looks crystal clear with no debris.
    Here are my levels:

    FC: 9.5
    CC: 0
    CYA: 40
    PH: 7.8
    TA: 80

    The water level is still 6 inches below the return. Since all my levels look so good will I still need to SLAM it?, or do anything special?

    Thanks for your help

    Looks like you are going to have an EASY opening this year.

    Just be sure to get it going before the ware warms up too much.

    Sounds like a successful closing/opening! Well done! But you peaked, so I think that means the cake will fall...or am I confused?
