Re: closing, we can't seem to find a day to do the 'whole works', but only having closed once, I don't want to be doing something I shouldn't be doing. Am I missing something with this plan...heavy dose of bleach a few days prior to close. Day before closing, add polyq (if I decide to). First day of closing, remove stairs, vacuum, backwash, drain off below skimmer, remove whatever hardware I need to inside pool. Cover pool (see below). Following up on another day (before freezing), take care of plumbing 'components', etc. Is there anything wrong with this picture?
Also, we have an above ground with deck surrounding on all sides. We've decided to lay the cover flat over the top and extended it out over the deck, then tying off the cover to the posts on the deck. Has anyone tried this approach? What type of rope/? did you find successful yet will still fit through the grommets? Thanks.
