    You care because what you are looking at there is an oxidizer, not a sanitizer. Search the forum for oxidizers.

    Welcome to TFP!

    See the Pool School article Closing an In Ground Pool or Closing (Winterizing) Your Above Ground Pool, as appropriate. If you close when the water is cold (especially 50F or below) and open when it is still cold, you significantly reduce your chances of getting algae, especially of you SLAM the pool before closing and then use Polyquat 60.
