Still haven’t closed my pool yet (waiting for latest possible time) and have been scooping leaves out and cleaning out the skimmer basket throughout the days nonstop. I’d say I’m doing a pretty good job considering all the trees behind my backyard! Yay for crystal clear water and pretty foliage! If only those pretty leaves could fall elsewhere until I order and put on my mesh winter cover lol. My question is, is it ok for me to still have my pool open this time of year while scooping out a million leaves/vacuuming/etc.? I am planning on closing this Saturday and am very overwhelmed with all the info. Do I really need Polyquat 60 if I close the pool at SLAM level? The water is currently 50 degrees and freezing temperatures are approaching. I also plan to open as early as humanly possible. I’m so afraid of having a green pool! Ahhhh! Thank you!
