    Closing Pool

    First time ever closing. We are getting ready to get a real frigid cold spell (overnight temps dropping to the high 20's for the next week, beginning this Monday night, with day time highs only in the 30's and 40's). My situation, I don't have a clue what I am doing. Went to a poll store today and they advised some shock wave, Sea Klear 90 day Algae Prevention & Remover, Pool Magic and a couple of Gizzmo's and some plugs. Will these things really do the job, or am I just sniffing in.the wind here? Is this all I need to close?

    I don't close my pool.

    That said, you need chlorine to close your pool....nothing else.

    I suggest the article in Pool School will get you started.

    We can help. How soon are you closing? Do you have any reliable test numbers? If so, what are they?

    You need balanced water, something to blow the lines, RV antifreeze if you want extra protection, and the plugs/gizmos. None of that other junk.

    If you are not using a cover, you have the bonus of being able to add a lil bleach every now and then.
