Spring start

Postby confused » Thu 26 Feb, 2009 14:05

I was wondering about the spring pill a lot of places are advertising. It says you add it to the skimmer. However I had some questions. It says it is slow release so when would you add it? We live in indiana and was not opening the pool til memorial day. That means the skimmer won't be hooked up til about then. Can you add it to the pool water kind of like the winter pill and when. Does anyone know how long it takes to empty out.

Thank you

Spring maintenance really needs to start when the days are sunny and begin to warm up.
You cannot use a slow release product like the spring pill unless you are running the pump.
This product seems to be an algaecide and clarifier in a slow release form.
