    Opening Question

    SLAM complete as of yesterday. All checkboxes checked. Time to balance my numbers. Too bad it's going to be in the 40s most of the week :rant: Pictures from deep end and shallow end. It was cloudy when I took them

    Opening Question

    Today, I can see the bottom of my pool from my 2nd story window with no problem. It's as clear as it was last summer! CC was <0.5 yesterday Unfortunately, I ran out of 0871 (I think that was the number) for my FC/CC testing yesterday :( Got more on the way So, to be safe, I still have my SWGC...

    Opening Question

    It's open! Now SLAMing It was green when I rolled the cover off. I'll try and add some pics Now, it looks blue again but it's an opaque-milky blue thanks to all the dead algae. Hoping to see the bottom again in a week or so

    Opening Question

    Cover is blue. Figured the algae was post-closing last Oct. It was still relatively warm in Oct and Nov. Fighting with the wife to open soon. She'd rather the pool installer do it since this pool is only a year old and I've never opened before :)

    Opening Question

    took a peak under the cover....green but not a swamp. Did see some algae growth along the sides of the steps. Should I start the opening now or just wait until my original scheduled time later this month?

I checked the date (a little too late). 20 009 - so, Jan 9 2020 (I believe). Is this batch too old? I opened one of them. The liquid was still yellow. But...
