St. Paul/Minneapolis, MN - Pc Pools, one of America's leading direct marketers of above ground pools and pool supplies for residential and commercial pool owners announces The Smart Seven above ground pool closing tips:
  1. Vacuum your above ground pool & remove all debris from the bottom using an automatic above ground pool clean
  2. Use a Blue Wave's Winterizing Pool Chemical Package to add the correct pre-formulated chemicals for your pool size.
  3. Drain Pool Filter tank of all water. Bring your pool pump/motor indoors to protect from inclement weather. Remove return eyeballs and install Winterizing Plugs.
  4. Winterize your pool skimmer with an Aquador protective cover.
  5. Put on a winter pool cover. Solid winter pool covers should float on top of water. If using an Air Pillow, inflate 2/3 full. For mesh winter pool covers, do not drain pool lower than bottom of skimmer. Place a leaf net securely over existing winter pool cover, removing it after leaves have fallen to ensure clean opening in the spring.
  6. Fill wall bags and fasten to covers cable every 2-3 feet. Tighten cable securely around winter pool cover. Position wall bags on top of pool cover.
  7. Use pool cover clips or premium Cover Lock Jr.'s to secure cover. Fully protect your winter cover from high winds with cover seal.
