I'm getting pretty close to closing down the pool for its first year up.
I think i understand the basics of the steps to winterize it..
-drain the water down to just below the two intake holes
-take off all the pumps (salt water and regular pumps/sand pump) and store in house (not garage)
-put an inner tube in the middle of the pool
-pull out the steps from the pool, maybe place on the deck for the winter (plastic).
-put the cover that came with the pool over the pool (tie down somehow)?
Did i miss anything here?
I assume i should pull the steps out of the pool, otherwise the cover wont really cover that area.
I also am unsure on the cover.. the one that came with the pool.. is it good enough.. i cant recall, but i thought it had small holes in it, which may or may not matter?
If the cover it came with is no good, any suggestions on an alternative.. or just an 18 footer from amazon with good ratings?
Thanks in advance
