    Time between swim ability and closing

    This is what I am going to do until the water reaches 60 degrees...keep FC up and vac when needed. Keep cover on (to keep out leaves, etc.) until time to test or clean. Once water temp is 60, follow AGP Closing procedures...drain to proper level, plug return, drain hoses/filter, remove pump and filter? for storage. Cover and wait til Spring.

    Does this sound about right?

    You forgot, before and until you cover, go in for a short swim and act like you enjoy the water that cold. That is what I do.

    Is there any benefit to removing the solar cover at night to cool faster and cover during the day to prevent chlorine loss? Or is the ground surrounding the pool going to keep the water temp up to the point where it's not worth the trouble?
