The winter of 2011 - 2012 has been blessing to many of us.
Lower heating costs. Lower, maybe no, costs for snow plowing & removal. Less damage to our homes & property.
All of that was especially good considering the higher & continually rising gas prices, continued high unemployment and other economic concerns.
But with a warm winter and early spring comes some extra care for swimming pools. Although it's been warm since mid March, many of us will still not open our swimming pools until we usually do: mid to late May.
What does all of that mean? Algae growth. And I don't mean simple algae growth, I mean green, murky pools. Why? The reason is pretty simple.
