Welp! I've done everything I can for this pool this season. I've gotten to swim a total of 4 times. So a few days ago, the pump quit working. I've tried several times to restart it. Today when it started to restart I could smell smoke so I turned it back off. Since it's so close to the end of the season I really don't see the point in replacing the pump and filter this year. How do I go about closing it please? I've never closed a pool down for the winter because this is the first pool we've ever had. Thanks for all the help to get it into a usable condition this summer! I really appreciate all the feedback.
