After having a great summer using BBB (converted from Baquacil) I am planning to close my pool in the next two weeks... before I do I have questions regarding the following tips from the 'Pool School':
* Drain water to 6' below lowest return/skimmer opening and hoses/fittings removed.
I can drain the water to the lowest point, but not sure how to drain the extra 6 inches... do I need a submersible pump?
* A polyquat algaecide may be administered per dosing instructions on product (optional.) Distribute evenly with brush, leaf rake or leaf skimmer.
I live in NE Kansas... is a polyquat algaecide 'required' in my neck of the woods?
