With optimum conditions, how long does it take you to heat say, ten degrees with that DV? I'm guessing in peak summer time you have to avoid using it eh?Need to go see about heating it back up for the weekend. Cold front and lots of rain yesterday probably got it out of the comfort zone! And it's going to be cloudy the next couple of days so solar probably won't help much either. Time for some heat pump!
64 on the first day in? A man after my own heart. I'll be in the pool when it hits 60s too... (although I do prefer high 70s, 80s!)Hey Now,
Haven't posted here in years, but this site was instrumental in getting me to properly deal with the pool. Thanks to all!
We are in NW TN and opened on March 31....early for folks around here, but just couldn't look at the cover any more.
Half full, but balanced when closed. Looked great after removing cover. Filled it up to 22000gal (in-ground). Dumped in 25 lbs of Ca to get hardness at 250ppm and trimmed the acid for 7.6pH. Water temp was 59F. Waited a day or two and added stabilizer CYA with aim of 40ppm. Dissolved good in this laundry device the wife had for putting her bra in to wash it. She wasn't crazy about the idea, but I'll buy her another cause it was perfect in the skimmer. Did an algaecide 60 treatment while the trees were raining pollen and stuff in the water. Was clear from day one. Temp got to 64F by April 8, so hopped on the floaties and spent a gorgeous first day drinking screwdrivers and getting sun burn.
The season begins. Cheers!
