So, I closed my pool this weekend.
I had mentioned before that birds like to live in one of my uprights.
They do pack a pretty good nest in there. This is the third season they have done so
People have been asking how to take care of hard plumbed pipes. This is what I do, they are self draining, and the hardware cloth over the ends stops the chipmunks from making them a home.
And finally, is it me, or does this liner fade seem to be a tad excessive? (look at the square in front of the brown step). That area was under the stair mat. This liner went in new about three and a half months ago. SLAMmed once at opening, and my CL levels are not more that 6.0 ppm, and more likely around 4.0 ppm. It just seems like a lot of fade to me. I do get a lot of sun, but how much UV can be left at 4' deep.
It was a good season, with a lot of use, sorry to have to cover it up (my wife hates the way to cover looks, and whishes we could keep the pool open all year long).
