IMPORTANT: If no one is going to be home it is imperative that you let us know so that we do not leave the water running unattended.

  • If you have a vinyl lock-in cover you must store it in a proper container, filled with water and 500mls of concentrated algaecide (recommended). Do Not store this type of cover Dry.
