I am a newer pool owner. The past 2 years, I had the pool company close my pool. I am thinking about closing the pool myself this year. The past 2 openings, the water was dirty. I have a solid cover, but I also have a rock wall which has slight gaps between it and the cover. I end up with leaves and worms in the pool come spring. Is there anything I can add or do to prevent (or at least lessen) the murkiness?
Also, my pump sits up about 3 feet higher than the pool. How would one blow out the line to the drain AND add antifreeze?
