What did you do to your pool today?

Hooked up old pool pump and filter momentarily so I can finish filling the pool and get the water circulating. New pool pump should be here in a week or so. I'd like to play with my new pool cleaner tomorrow before work. :mrgreen:

Tested FC twice so far (in the middle of my opening SLAM), topped off with some bleach to keep it at 16. Changed the hairnet in my skimmer basket, brushed the sides, found some new string and put the thermometer in the pool. The piece of string it was on last year was pretty raggy looking.

My water has been cloudy for the past week, but I can see the bottom of the shallow end now. It's almost ready!

Checked pH and FC, sat outside-by myself- had my coffee, listened to the bubblers, put my feet in the tanning ledge, bought some acid, found a couple of outdoor rugs (!!), watched the sky for the rains to begin and ruin my clean, pretty deck I spent 12 hours cleaning on Tuesday, and wondering if I should just go ahead and roll out the backwash hose for the inevitable waste that's coming....

Patrick...are you going to start a thread on your Dolphin refurb? I hope you took some pics! What differences are you noticing? As you know, mine is new this year, but I will need to replace parts eventually.

Man, woodyp is right! Its absolutely ridiculous this year! Its been years since I have seen the pollen this bad here. The stuff has buried me in it!
It was so bad this year with those little brown things too that we decided we weren't taking the cover off until the middle of April. It was terrible !
