I'm planning to open my pool tomorrow. I took a peak under the cover and the water looks clear but I will have to add water to bring it up to mid-skimmer. I read the pool opening post but am unclear about a few things. I just started using the TFP method late last year after having an algae problem and want to avoid it happening again.
After reconnecting everything, how long should the pump run before I do my first chem test?
I was planning to brush the walls, floor and walk-in then letting the robot clean. Is this ok or should I do it manually? I did a backwash when the pool was closed.
When do I add the salt? I used to add it during opening then start the swg. Should I continue doing that or add chlorine depending on my chem result?
I will post my chem test results when I get them to ensure I'm doing everything correctly.
