    Pool Closing first time with chlorine

    Hello everyone! I was using Baquacil for years and converted this year. BTW, if I can do it ANYONE can do it. I had the BEST season ever; not one speck of algae this summer. It's been wonderful.

    OK, I know how to shock and close the pool with Baquagoo, however, now that I've been using chlorine I wondered if I have to get the ph, TA, CYA at certain levels before closing. I haven't read anything about it in pool school or in any posts.

    Nope, nothing there about the other levels. I do know how to close, clean, etc. PH, TA and CYA, that's my question.

    Just keep everything in the same range as you do during the summer. ( ph, alk ect)
    SHock the pool really well a few hours before you close the pool. nice and simple
