    My first closing went great!

    Then I found out I was a dork! When I was putting the mesh cover on, I decided that I would put the clean side up. One side was noticeably dirtier than the other side, so I thought that the cleanest side would have been the top since it took all the rain over last winter.

    I realized about 3/4 of the way through that I was putting the cover on upside down, so I went ahead and finished putting it on. Now I have 2 big black rubber squares on top at the corners of the steps. I guess these are protection for the cover for when the middle goes down from snow so it doesn't rub against the corners and tear.

    So the only real question is, should I leave it or flip it?

    Good idea!! Those are the pads that protect the cover material from being abraded by the corners.

    Have a great winter! If you don't stop by here in the colder months, I look forward to seeing you here next spring

    For some of us, its that stuff that hangs around almost 9mths out of the year, building up and hiding our pools so we don't feel sad that its too cold to swim. Out of sight - out of mind. Then it melts and runs off so we can actually see where our pool is 3 mths out of the year....Its winter camo

    For the rest, its that stuff that falls in the mountains about 9mths out of the year, melts and runs off down to the lowlands in your area to fill the aquafirs and furnish about the only water supply people have there in the dry areas of the country.... you know, the reason you CAN fill your pool?
