Enjoying the dog days of summer sitting by the swimming pool and having a bar-b-q, nothing gets much better than that. It takes chemicals to keep your pool nice and refreshing all summer long. When your summer enjoyment is over and it is time to get the pool ready for the off season remember that those same chemical can wreak havoc on our environment. Prior to closing your pool you have to make sure that your water is chemically balanced.  To do that you have to sometimes add chlorine, antifreeze, and or dry acid before you can close your pool down. Are you one of the people that just run a hose to the nearest storm drain? Do you release that pool water over a period of time or all within an hour or so? The Floyd County and New Albany Stormwater Department would like to share some helpful tips that you can apply this fall when you are getting ready to shut the pool down for the season.
