So we put up an above ground pool this season, dealt with algae since my CYA/ chlorine was too low. SLAMed the pool, and am finally at good levels. And just passed my 3rd and final town inspection last week. Yeah! Thanks for all the forum information!
Since it has been a pretty cool summer, water temp is maybe 70, got up to 80 for a while, already thinking of how to close it up, will worry about heating options over the winter. I have read the basics on closing up. Haven't purchased supplies (cover, pillows, etc.) yet.
Do I remove the return eye and replace it with a plug? Is that difficult to remove?
Hoses to pump, I understand that I drain the hoses and pump/filter, Do I detach them or add antifreeze? If antifreeze, does it go into the filter? Where would I actually put antifreeze?
What is PolyQuat?
What is a spider gasket?
Are there different qualities in covers, leaf covers
