    What's your current pool temp?

    Our pool got up to 93 today here in Georgia. Full sun from morning until 6 pm.

    White floating flakes

    I’m in Georgia and have the same thing going on in my pool right now. It’s pollen. If you run skimmer socks you’ll be able to catch all the nasty yellow pollen before it goes into your filter. You’ll also be able to see that those “white” flakes aren’t necessarily white.

    Super long lighter for fire pit?

    Might be a little more than what you are looking for, but I use this to quickly fire up my Big Green Egg: https://www.jjgeorgestore.com/weed-torch-32-reach/ There’s also a smaller 20 inch version.

    2019 Spring Opening

    I have already switched back to liquid chlorine a week or so ago, along with trichlor tabs, since the need for the initial large amounts of chlorine has gone down. It probably only has a couple more days of filtering before it’ll be clear. I can start really fine tuning things then.

    Day 16 The pool is almost there. It continues to clear everyday and I can see the main drain at the bottom of the deep end. The pollen has been heavy and it hasn’t helped, but the pool has kept on trucking towards clear. I should be in the clear by Saturday. Since I am close to the end I...

    That is the transition to the deep end. I can’t wait until I can see the Polaris and the main drain in the deep end. There’s improvement each day in the water clarity. Still running my pump on low 24/7 until it clears.

    Day 11 Here are my numbers: FC - 11 CC - 0 CH - 180 TA - 70 CYA - 0 PH - N/A I added trichlor tabs today to start to slowly raise CYA levels and add to FC levels. I also plan to switch back to liquid chlorine from cal hypo tomorrow for the bulk of my chlorine to finish out the next few days...

    2019 Spring Opening

    Day 9 This morning my FC levels were well below shock levels since I didn’t check it yesterday evening or add more chlorine last night. I added enough cal-hypo to raise the FC back to shock levels, 11ppm, even though it was short lived. When I got home from work the FC levels were low again...

    Day 8 Although you can’t really tell from the pictures, the pool looks less cloudy from day 7 to day 8. There’s been improvement each day so that is encouraging. I got a little lazy yesterday, or busy running after my 3 year old, and didn’t check my levels or add any chlorine before going...
