First off I would like to thank Duraleigh,Jasonlion and all the rest who helped us get our pool to FINALLY CLEAR UP. On Sunday past or pool was cloudy and we went and got the chlorine as Duraleigh recommended and put it in that afternoon. We went back early evening and it was clearing up! Unfortunaltly Sunday night I had the the unfortunate opportunity to experience a heart attack ! I was hospitalized from Sunday night untill yesterday evening. When my wife and I got home home, first place we headed was to the pool to see had it cleared up at all. I couldnt believe it did and was still clear!
My question now is how should we go about closing it for the season? Last year we shocked with store shock and put a cover over it until spring but in the spring the cover was full of leaves and such. Does anybody have any suggestions or a routine they do with an above ground pool for keeping leaves off of the cover?? Someone had suggested getting some big inner tubes and floating them in the center of the pool and this will keep the leaves to the outside edge instead of collapsing into the middle of the pool and the water getting all nasty ...
Any suggestions will help
PS ... We are taking a water sample in tomorrow to be tested. Should I get them to test for everything or just chlorine?
