I feel like something really bad is about to happen. This is my first opening since we put the pool in last year. Things seem to have gone too perfect.
In April I stuck my hand in the pool, under the cover, and took a sample, chlorine was still very high. <4 I stopped counting because I didn't want to waste my drops.
Monday we pulled the disgusting cover off. barf...
Underneath my water was crystal clear, but I had to add 2 feet of water. Took forever, especially when we realized we forgot to put the plugs back in the filter and pump...duh.
Tuesday am, I realize I forgot to order more fas-dpd drops...(on order), so I don't want to waste them and I throw in, I would say, 3L of last year's leftover chlorine in, so hubby can go refill the canisters.
Tuesday noon I perform first test on my water.
TA 200 (started the MA/aeration cycle today)
CYA below 30 (added cya sock)
CC barely anything to turn clear.
Everything's been vaccuumed (mostly junk from my solar cover, left out all winter)
MA went in this morning and PH is currently at 7.2-7.3
Temp is 73 degrees
Can the kids jump in now? (I think the answer is yes, but sometimes need my hand held)
