Removing the pool cover and adding new water!!!

Over the course of the winter, water, leaves and debris accumulate on top of the winter cover.  Care should be taken to remove as much of the accumulations, as possible, in order to facilitate cover removal.  This helps avoid having debris and water pour into the pool.  Once the cover has been removed, it is time to raise the water level, so that the filtration system can be put to use.  If there is a possibility that new water additions will contain sediments, dissolved metals or contaminants, you should consider using something to pre-filter the new water.  It is better to remove the problem, than to try and treat it, after the water has been added to the pool.  The products below can remove sediments, metals such as iron, copper and manganese and contaminates such as sulfur.

Removing Leaves and Debris, from the pool and surroundings!!!
Once the filter is running, you can use a pool vacuum to remove debris, from inside the pool.  This will help speed up the cleanup and reduce the amount of chlorine or oxidizer required, to eliminate all the organic wastes.  Cleaning up around the pool can keep dead leaves from being blown into the pool.  The products below are designed to get the pool and surrounding area cleaner, with less time and effort.

Optimizing the water chemistry and improving pool water clarity!!!
With the bulk of the debris removed, now you're ready to add enough chlorine or shock, to destroy all the organic waste, algae and remaining debris.  Don't drag this part out.  The longer it takes to get a stable free chlorine level, the more product will be required.  Add a shocking dose, every few hours and run the filter 24/7, until conditions are optimized.  Test the water chemistry and adjust the pH, total alkalinity, calcium hardness and cyanuric acid, as might be necessary.  Reliable water testing and better circulation will help get the pool swimming-ready.

Alternative Pool Water Sanitizers
Most pools use some sort of chlorine.  A salt chlorine generator is definitely a better way to do chlorine.  Salt chlorine generators are highly automated and give you better control.  The salt level is about that found in human tears.  No installation models are available, that are plug and play ready.  Adding a solar-powered pool mineralizer adds copper and zinc ions, that provide algae control and additional sanitizing.   This reduces the amount of chlorine required, to maintain an optimum level.  An ultraviolet (UV) sterilizers kills virtually everything passing through the cell, including chlorine-resistant pathogens.  It doesn't completely replace chlorine, but will provide better results, less odor and reduce chlorine usage.
