Hi folks, this is year 2 for me with this pool and I am wondering if I am doing something right. I close and open my pool with the recommendations on this site, I also use your test kits and methods to maintain it. Thanks by the way for helping me keep my pool in good shape. But one thing I may be overlooking is the equipment. My equipment pad is in an enclosure from the sides but open to the sky, it's under sun most of the day with shade in the late evening. Should I cover my equipment up while it's all down for the winter? Or keep it open. I have a Hayward heater, two pumps, and the filter... I left it wide open last year but am not sure if that's the right thing. I will post Pics in a few.
