I know we are looking at summertime....but I have some general questions about closing this fall. Our builder said we should balance our chemicals, put the mesh cover on and run the pump and polaris 280 cleaner a few hours per day.
1) mesh cover allows for rainwater to mix with balanced water- which could drop the ph. So removing cover and testing/rebalancing may be needed with rain?
2) if water is continuously added from rain, how do I know if water level is too high without removing cover? We have torrential downpours here and have had to pump to waste 3 times in last month to reduce water level.
3) any recommendations as far as keeping leaves from sneaking under mesh cover and into pool? We have oaks around pool with heavy leaf drop
Again, this is an inground vinyl liner pool! Thanks in advance for any tips and suggestions!!
