    winterizing an above grond salt water pool

    New to a salt water pool this year and wondering what I need to do to winterize it. We live in Nova Scotia so I have to completely close it. We have had a pool in the past where we added a winterizing kit, lowered the water level, unhooked the pump and covered the pool for the winter. Do I still add the same winterizing kit?

    Thanks!
    My pool is inground, it has about 17000 gallons, the filter is DE, and I think is plaster:)

    Welcome to TFP....you can use the same procedure as you have in the past, but it's really not necessary. Here is a link to the article in pool school that covers AGP closing. pool-school/winterizing%20and%20closing%20your%20above%20group%20pool

    FYI...a saltwater pool is a chlorine pool

    Perfect, that's what I thought but wanted to be sure.
