Forum Title: Pool company says they need to add Winterset and Anti-freeze for pool closing
Hiya TFP people- Well since joining the community I've done a great job of maintaining my pool chemistry. My pool is scheduled to close this pm. I have still retained my company to help me with this as I can't handle the cover myself. Free Chlorine: 3.5 Combined Chlorine - none/trace PH: 7.6 TA: 80 Calcium Hardness: 180 CYA: 96 Salinity: 2800ppm The pool company says it wants to put in Winterset - a cold weather algaecide and Anti-freeze. I live in a place that gets pretty cold during the winters (Hills of Western Connectictut). Are these products necessary? I'm sure the antifreeze is. Asking more about the Winterset. It's from Phoenix Pool products and its not on their site. I just want to know as much about the proper procedure as possible. How are my levels for closing of the other chemicals? Thank you.

If you CYA is 100ppm (how did you get 96ppm with the K2006?), your minimum FC is 5ppm, with your daily target at 8ppm (for SWG pool). You really should get that FC up right away.
