I started using the BBB this year and it was fantastic basically used only bleach and a little muriatic acid all year and the pool was perfect thanks to this site!!
My pool came with the Acqador skimmer cover but I forgot to tell them to install it so I would have to take off the inside plate and gasket which is siliconed should I bother what are the benefits of closing this off??
Also what should I put in the pool before covering I use to buy a winterizing kit from the pool store.
