Hey guys, this is my first closing coming up. I've got a couple of questions to hopefully avoid the swamp I had last year.
We bought the house in March this year and when I opened the pool it was literally a green swamp full of worms. Following the TFP method and lots of help from some members on here, I got it cleaned up and looking great all summer long.
I have a 17'x33" rectangle inground. We have a mesh cover for the winter that allows rain water and sunlight to get through. I'm wanting to know what exactly do I need to do to avoid the swamp this next spring?
I've read through the closing thread of an inground pool, but I'm unsure, about chemicals to add for the winter, how low to drain the pool. I thought I would have to add extra chemicals to avoid the green mess??
Any advice and tips would be extremely helpful.
Right now outside temps are in the high 70's to low 80's, I'm in Indiana, so swimming days are pretty much over, but I don't mind keeping the pool open longer to avoid any problems in the spring if that's what I need to do.
