    Do you put anything in stored AGP for winter?

    I just took down my intex AGP and have it not completely folded up in a shed so it can completely dry out. But is there anything i should spray/sprinkle inside the pool while it sits in the shed through the winter? Like something to stop it from cracking (if it even does that), keep varmints out, whatever other things that could happen to it over a winter of storage.

    Most people just generously sprinkle talcum powder in it and fold it up.

    I could definitely do that. Does that just keep it dry? Also, next year when I go to set it up, do I just vacuum that out or will a filter get it when I fill it with water?

    It keeps it dry and keeps the vinyl from trying to stick together. Just shake as much out as you can next year and the rest will filter out.

    You mentioned varmints. Are mice a problem in the shed?
    1) The size of your pool in gallons 4440.
    2) The type filter you have is an Intex 2500 gph and it has a re-useable fabric filter
    3) If your pool is an AG (above ground)
    4) Intex 15 by 48 metal frame.
    5) If you know, tell us the size pump 2500gph and the size (flow rate) of your filter.
