To clarify the steps of closing the pool.
Two weeks ago the heater was switched off and we have allowed the temperature of the water to drop to under 10 degrees - the recent cold nights have helped going down to 3 degrees for a few nights this week.
Yesterday I cleaned the pool, the skimmer nets were replaced and the pump filter was also cleaned.
I then added a winter dose of Chlorine equivalent to what I use for a shock treatment then covered the pool with the winter cover.
I left the pump running for an additional 24 hours and now its been switched off.
From now until the opening of the pool in March I will just run the pump once per week for 3 hours just to turn the water over.

The swimming pool is opened in March and offered on a private basis from 12th March through to the end of May for guest staying in La Forge and then throughout the summer months shared with La veille Maison also.
