when to add algicide before closing

Postby margaret NJ » Mon 01 Sep, 2008 21:42

My pool will be closed on Mon. sept. 9,. by a pool company. The woman at the company says they don't put chemicals in the pool. Last year we did not put any in either. This year, I want to add something. I'm looking to throw in algicide. Is this ncessary and when should I throw it in, a week before, a day before or moments before the cover goes on?
I thank you for your advise

I wrote about the recommended closing procedure from Buckman Labs (the makers of PolyQuat algaecide) for using an alagecide in this post .

If your pool company doesn't put chemicals in on the closing (even if you have to pay for them) I'd start looking for another company
