We always have the pool company close our pool to the tune of about $650. Most of that cost is 80 gallons of anti-freeze. Is that even a realistic number? I have always wondered if they are actually putting that much in since it seems like a ton! We have an electrical autocover that needs a high water level (at least 1/2 way up skimmer) to support it. I read pool school on lowering the water level and don't see how that is a possiblity for us with the cover. Are we doomed to paying this huge fee every fall?!
