    Winterizing pool, black side of pool cover up?

    We've closed our above ground pool for the year, but accidentally put the black side of the pool cover up. I know it's supposed to be facing down, but what will happen if we leave it this way all winter? There's already leaves and water on the cover and I don't want to go through the trouble of turning it around if it's not important.

    They just put the blue on it for looks. I wouldn't worry about it.

    You can stop SLAMing your pool when you pass the OCLT (You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & You have .5ppm CC's or less) & your water is clear.

    Thanks for the reply. I thought the black side had something to do with retention of the chemicals added before closing throughout the winter. Guess I won't worry about it. Thanks!
