Hey guys its that time of the year to close the pool. This will be my first time closing it myself being a brand new pool. I had them close it last year and I tried to watch as much as I could. The guys were pretty rough with my salt water stuff, light, fittings and so on. I would rather do it my self and take the time to take all the stuff apart right. It seems like they just try to close as many pools in one day as possible.
Anyways just a few questions for you guys that have the same style of pool:
1. Should I super chlorinate a few days before with my salt genrator just to clean up the water?
2. Do most of you just use the pool store winter kit to throw in the pool?
3. What is the best way to drain the pool down. Can you just stick the vaccum hose in the middle of the pool and suck it out through the skimmer or will the pump not be able to do this? I have a little sump pump but it is not the quickest.
Any other tips you guys have would be great. I will be using an air pillow again this year just not the stupied huge one they pool place used last year. They blew it up all the way and it broke within 2 weeks. I plan on getting a 4x4 on and putting it right in the middle this time.
Thanks in advance
