The time is here to close the pool. Acorns and some leaves have started to fall and it's a bumper crop this year!
water temp is not to 60 yet but the acorns and leaves dictate closing in the next few days. I have a giant oak overhanging 1/4 of the pool. It's great for partial shade on blistering days but when the acorns start it's a nightmare!
Couple of questions-- I have polyquat 60 and plan on using it (unless suggested otherwise)
to inhibit growth while the temp falls. Extended weather is calling for a good down starting middle of next week. I will get the chlorine to shock level before closing also.
I have been using the liquidator since june and overall it's been great,thanks to the fine instructions from members on this site. Would anyone know approx how long it takes to empty chlorine from the liquidator on max setting?? I have the 3/8 upgrade. I have approx. 2.5 gallons left and according to the calculator this amount would bring me right to shock level. I thought of setting to maxium sunday afternoon and closing monday afternoon and would like to have the liquidator empty of chlorine and ready for water emptying, cleaning and storage.
The site has been a lifesaver for this first year owner. I buy my chlorine at the local pool store and have watched all season as others have bought many kinds of different chemicals (read expensive). All I've needed is the 100xl test kit,, BBB ,,and a little chlorine,pool has stayed crystal clear all summer!
