    Guidance before opening pool

    Well took a peek below my saftey cover to see what my water looked like. It appears with the warmer weather algae is beginning to show. My opening is scheduled for 2 weeks from now. Do I try to add bleach or an algae preventer and mix the best I can or just let it go and wait until opening and deal with it then. The water is clear with a slight green tint at this point. Thanks for your input.

    There are two things you can do: ignore it till the cover comes off, or get the pump running with the cover on and start balancing the chemistry with the cover on. There isn't much you can do until the pump is running and you have good circulation.

    Personally, I would wait and deal with it all at once when you have the time and all the materials/chemicals/help you need on hand.
