    OMG! Easiest Pool Opening EVER

    Last Year, before finding TPF, my pool was still a green swamp 2 weeks after opening. But not this year, thanks to TFP. Now that this site has taught me how to handle Pool care, this is what my Pool looks like on opening day, BEFORE I even started to add chlorine.

    I'm truly not surprised.

    You've obviously become a proficient student of the TFP methods and are reaping the rewards!

    Beautiful pool and yard.... now if only it was warm enough to swim, huh?

    Well, I was surprised on how it looked when the cover came off. I knew I would be able to get it looking good fast, after what I learned last year, but I didn't expect to see the drains with the pool being idle for 7 months over the Chicago winter. But, now my auto-chlorinator will hold my SLAM level while I just sit on my butt and let the magic happen.

    60 degrees in Chicago today, but we will be in there soon.
