    Trip to Ireland was worth it - I just didn't want to mimic the green in my water :(

    Good Morning,

    I typically have my pool opened by 4/15. This year, we were in Ireland for over a week and I was not comfortable opening before we left. While we were gone, we had 2+ days of temps in the 80s and brilliant sunshine. I removed the cover this morning to a beautiful color of green

    Numbers are as follows:

    pH 7.3
    FC 0
    CC 0
    TC 0
    TA 30
    CYA 30
    Salt 1600

    This is the second year I am opening by myself. Last year was virtually clear water. This year - not so much.
    Just checking my process here -
    -Clear debris
    -turn on pump
    -Tackle the pH to raise 7.5-7.8
    -add liquid chlorine to raise to SLAM level
    -run pump 24/7 and maintain shock levels as frequently as needed

    Thanks for the votes of confidence.
    Thanks!!

    Your pH is a fine level for a SLAM SLAM So don't change that at this point. You can deal with TA after the SLAM too.

    Your plan otherwise is spot on.
