Have an 18ft above ground. Besides drainage of water and brining fc up to slam level do i need to add anything else prior to winter cover placement.
Next question i need a winter cover do I get a solid or A fine mesh cover. I plan on using a pillow in the middle as well. I am closing once water is at 60 degrees thanks for your time

You can also add polyquat 60, I do not but some do, I test FC in Jan and return back to SLAM level but I do not use a cover...

A Mesh cover will let water through so no pump needed on the cover but most do not use a cover pump on a small pool... The pillow will only move the water from the middle to the sides and then the pillow will move or deflate, some are just not using them... Most above ground pool covers are solid and usually only last a year....
