    my neighbor has a different method of pool closing - is it correct?

    catanzaro: Yes it appears to be a Cyclone. I think they did plug and push air through the system. I've never seen it done this way. Any idea what that white corrugated contraption is for? finalm6: I live in Toronto and have never heard of liner issues before. The closing instructions from...

    my neighbor has a different method of pool closing - is it correct?

    Today I noticed a couple of guys closing my backyard neighbor's pool. I'm not sure if they have a company as they were dressed kind of bummy. Since they have a similar pool to ours and we've only lived here a couple of years I decided to watch. I missed the start and from my vantage point...

    closing after SLAM

    I'm currently SLAMing the pool to treat algae. Once complete I plan to close the pool. In the past (new to TFP this year) I just took a water sample to the pool store and once they ok'd it I closed. For a couple of years I added algaecide but then someone told me its not necessary so I...

    water ok to swim in?

    We opened our pool two days ago. When I got it tested today they said all was good except to add some stabilizer. The water is perfectly clear but green. When I asked if it was ok to swim in it she said yes since my chlorine level was in the recommended range, but that I should increase the...

    Help! Newbie - did we blow pipes correctly?

    Hello, we've been pool owners for just a few months and decided to tackle closing ourselves this past weekend. The seminar we attended at the pool shop a few months ago made it seem straightforward but in hindsight are wishing we had it professionallly done! We live near Toronto and I want to...
