Forum Title: pool closing for dummies
Okay I read the pool school how to close your pool. I felt kind of lost. Remove this, undo that, etc. etc. I have a few questions...... Do I drain all the hoses and physically remove them after I get the water level below them? What do I remove from the pump,motor,filter station? I have never closed this pool correctly and I would like to start this year. And I live in ohio, the nights are now dippinging into the 50's and the pool is sitting at around 80 degrees. Kids are not getting in anymore and I want to get what I need to close. I have to order a winter pool cover because the old one is not useable. And if I understand correctly all I need is bleach? Or maybe algicide if I don't waint until the pool is 50 degrees? Sorry for all the questions but reading pool school only made me want to ask exactly what I need to do. Thanks for your help.

The exact details depend a great deal on just what equipment you have and how things are setup. For an above-ground pool you normally remove and drain the hoses, drain the pump and filter and bring them inside and then cover the pool. A few pictures of your setup, or a through description, will help us explain it step by step. For the least trouble opening in the spring it is best to wait until the water gets cold (around 50 degrees). However, if you want to close sooner you can do that. The odds of having algae in the spring go up significantly if you close early, but algae can be cleared up if you have to.

Thank you for responding. I will try to get a picture on here. I don't know how. I have a cartridge filter, am I supposed to remove the whole casing? Sorry I just have no clue.
