    How much of a “close” in Raleigh, NC

    @Newdude sorry to keep asking you questions! Now that I’ve opened the drains - the drains have caps. Do I keep them off? Do I need to wrorry about a critter finding their way in? Or once the water stops running, I can re-cap?

    How much of a “close” in Raleigh, NC

    Hi friends! This is where I’m at. Water lowered below jet/skimmer. Chen’s added. Cover in place, put in a pillow for good measure. I was able to get off one end of each hose to the pool/filter. Is this ok? There is still water in the filter. Any tips on where the drains are? What else do I...

    How much of a “close” in Raleigh, NC

    I already have a cover on (black side up to heat it a bit) so we can still swim some & keep the falling leaves out. We have lots of trees. We’ll definitely be covering it over the winter. I’ve decided I am going to drain below skimmer, unhook / open / drain filter & cover for the winter. Maybe...

    Thanks!! We DO have trees & will for sure have to deal with a swamp in/on the pool!! 1 of the trees in our yard (away from the pool) started dropping leaves this last weekend so I shifted my planning into high gear!! I kind of want to drain the pool below the skimmer & drain/open the filter &...

    Thanks @NCMike youre correct - nothing underground here. I will continue to get the components needed to close & hope I can come up with a better game plan in the coming weeks!

I’m that time, we’ve had 1 big snow & ice storm. But since, it’s just dusting of snow & some cold snaps I...

    New to TFP, learning my AGP in Raleigh, NC

    I see the tf-100, but not the tf-100 pro test kit. I’m kinda worried now that I’m letting my kids swim in something that’s harmful! 😫 My husband did have an issue with his grey chest hairs turning green, which I realize now is the copper. I’ve coincidentally since lowered the copper # on the...
