I think I am almost done with pour first winter closing of our AG pool . We got the cover on, barely! They do not leave any extra room on those things! I bought some clips and plastic wrap to go around the edge of the cover because we get a lot of wind and my neighbor loses his cover every year! Any thoughts on these?
My real question is about my Hayward filter. I just took it apart and hosed down the inside removing all the residual DE from the flex tubes. It is all clean now, and I am pleased that I was able to do this without the help of my husband who works too many hours to worry about this stuff. Anyway, now what...? I am bringing the filter in the basement to protect it from the freezing cold New England winter. Do the flex tubes need any special care? Is it okay for them to dry out? I put the filter back together thinking that it will be all ready to go in the spring, should I have left it apart for the protection of the flex tubes for any reason?
