Pool opening came late this year due to our non-existent spring and never ending winter. When I pushed the button to roll up the pool cover I anticipated that the WinterMoss™ and three previous years of PoolMossâ Pro would result in a clean, slightly cloudy body of water. I wasn’t disappointed. As you can see from the picture, the water just needs some filtration to return to the crystal clear pristine pool water we enjoy all summer long.
The guys from Poolside (one of our fine dealers in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area) arrived and got the system running. They removed the filters from the bottom of the pool and started filtration. I store the filters in the pool water so they won’t dry out and allow the organic contamination that accumulates on the filter paper to dry into a solid, impenetrable microscopic obstacle to proper filtration. This is the fourth year for these filters and they perform very well.
After a week of filtration, I removed the filters and washed off the accumulated debris from the winter. We’ve had a lot of rain in the past weeks that has refilled the pool to its proper depth and are enjoying the pool during our recent heat wave of 95-100 degree humid summer.
So far I’ve used four cups of cal-hypo, PoolMoss®Pro and catalytic carbon to maintain all chemistry in normal limits.
Family with kids come next week and we will have non=stop pool usage for the rest of the summer. Everyone comments on the clear, soft, non-irritating, and sweet smelling water. I just smile, say thanks, and praise the miracle of The Moss™.
