Were you using the pool pole as a lighting rod? Not advisable lol !

In that situation it’s whatever gets the job done. This rain and temp drop made it feel like winter instantly.

I backwashed my pool 3 times to get the water level down. We had at least 6” in 3 days. Crazy.

Same here. Hurricane Ian and the nor’easter it morphed into drastically dropped our temps. Last year at this time pool temp was 77°; now it’s 62°. As soon as the closing supplies I ordered show up, I’m closing it up. ☹️

OK it's time to end this thread for closure, with the closure. :ROFLMAO:

The company I ordered the cover through showed up Friday afternoon with no warning. I was supposed to be told so that I could have the pool ready for the cover, but the customer can go scratch, as per the current way of things. So I had some words with the crew about their office, and was clear that my beef with the office. The offered to come back after the weekend which I gladly accepted. I closed the pool over the weekend as seen here

Closing thread

They came Monday (yesterday) and installed the cover.

It's got reinforced patches on the stair corners as promised and they mostly core drilled as promised.

There are a few holes that they chipped, likely due to trying to save time without core drilling, but they are minor and once the sand/dirt fills them in, I'll never even notice. I haven't counted but at least 2/3 of then are clean holes.

The grey really looks nice against the other greys going on. The 15% upcharge was worth every penny there.

Thanks for taking this ride with me. You may now exit through the turnstiles once the ride has come to a complete stop.

The holes look like they are too big.
I'll fill them with polymeric sand to match. The anchors go through the slab under the pavers, they aren't going anywhere.
Some straps look a little bit loose.
Yeah. No two of the springs are compressed the same. :ROFLMAO: I'm going to give it some time in the sun and wind and will tighten them up soon.
don't like the one strap that's at and angle other than 90 degrees.
No explanation there but LAZY.

It looks worse in the pic and is only 2 - 3 inches off, but still. They drilled several other stones in the middle, why is that one special ? Because zero pride in one's work anymore, that's why. *sigh*
