I have a mesh cover and the pool is dark green every time it's opened.  Is there anything that can be done now in preparation for opening so it doesn't look so green, or take days to fix it?

Hello Danielle - Assuming the water is not frozen, you can peel back the cover and some liquid chlorine. We would also recommend adding more preventative algaecide. Since the pump is not running, you'll need to stir the chemicals around the pool with a pool pole. This should help keep the water cleaner until you open up the pool.

Hi there, we have a pool build in the backyard. I used to maintain it on a regular basis. Since we use the pool regularly the chances of it getting dirty is more. So I used to vacuum the pool and also clean the skimmers and the pumps. I would like to share a blog which I found online and it helped me a lot. I hope that this blog would help you to maintain the pool.
