Hi everyone. We are closing pool and I would like to verify we are doing the right thing; especially considering the "free" pool we were given has cost some major bucks, and we really don't want to have to replace the liner again. We are in central Missouri so it does freeze. If I follow the directions in pool school completely for closing pool, will that work considering we experience such low temps? No additional chemicals, eg. antifreeze? I am sure this was considered and you guys haven't disappointed me yet, I am just needeing a co-sign I suppose! Also, how should pump be stored? Drained and placed inside? Thanks to all of you so much for the advice and help you provide! Special thanks for answering questions that are repeatedly asked!
