    Preseason Green Pool

    I'm several weeks from my typical opening, but my pool is really green. This is the first time I've had a green pool since my pool was built in 2011. Any swimming before mid May is bonus swimming, but I start circulating mid April just to get it looking good. Should I go ahead and get things going or let it go until mid April when I typically start? We had a lot of warm weather after closing last year and an above average February.

    24,000 Gallon IG vinyl pool (16x36x8) with Hayward S200 sand filter and Hayward pump and heat pump. Built August 2011. I use a Taylor K-2005 test kit with a K-1515 add on.

    Early start is an earlier finish. And it frequently will be about aside while cooler and algae not as active. My pool is open now although we prob won't be in it until may

    We suggest opening before the water temps hit 60- algae starts to grow faster at 60+.

    Get started now! You don't want to be looking at green for days on end. You know the SLAM procedure, right?? SLAM

    Holler back if you have any questions on it.

    I'll likely get on it this weekend or early next week. Thanks for the advice!
