I'm in CT, I opened up on the 4th.

The water looks inviting...but chilly.

59 degrees.

Just got a new filter and pump delivered yesterday and today. Installing them will be tomorrow's project.

I can't wait to open, but just way too cold right now, and it does not seem like it will be warm enough any time in the immediate future.

This will be our first time opening the pool after winter, since it was built at the beginning of the season.

We opened (in Southern NH) 2 weeks ago. It was the first time I opened myself, so I wanted time to work out any kinks for NH vacation week in case things warmed up (it didn't). We just cranked up the heat (Propane) on Thursday and it was warm and toasty by Friday.

Had two great swim days with friends on Saturday/Sunday (water stayed at about 84 with our heat pump while we were swimming) and the air fluctuated between 70 to 45 (by 8pm)...It was cold to get out...

We definitely opened too early, but enjoyed looking at the open pool, so it was worth it. Now that I know how easy it was to open my pool, next year I can wait until I see mid-70s in the weather before opening.

All your pools look fabulous!! I'm looking forward to opening on May 20. I'm so tired of seeing that cover :)

We always open first week in April.. I know its foolish, but I can't stand winter, and the pool looks awesome. My little nieces and nephews swam for the first time last week. I don't heat it till a few days before I expect swimmers. The oak seeds really come down fast an furious for a while, but I'm home so I can keep on top of them.

Yep, the two weeks of pollen and catkin in my area are a pain. But the early opening is still worth it to me.
