Do those of you in the Bay Area close your above ground pools? The weather fluctuates from under 60 to over so much that I am not sure what the proper procedure would be. This will be the first year of closing, I was planning on balancing, shocking, putting on the cover. Since there will be many days over the winter that are over 60, and a couple where the temps are in the low 40's (brrrr, I know) should I still remove all the equipment drain to under the strainer, etc? Or am I risking an algae bloom because of the warmer winters we may have?
