    Oops! 😁 Water temp!!

    Took out ladder, vacuumed, tested CYA, gonna run pump 24 hours, loaded chlorine up to shock level. Then just came on and double checked what I needed to do, and saw the water temp needs to be below 60!! Ugh. The pool is at 70.

    We were going to drain tomorrow, put the cover on and put the pump filter away etc.

    Not sure what to do now??

    In the end, it's not the end of the world. Just get some polyquat 60 and put it in. Then close as planned. Worse that can happen is you might not be clear in the spring. We can take of that if it happens.

    Others might have a different plan, but that's what I would do if it was me.

    At least the ladder is out! Recheck your chlorine SLAM level when you actually do drain down and close.

    Personally, I would just wait to close. What did you decide to do?
