We are new to the area and installed an Coleman 18' above ground pool in our yard. The pool is on a concrete podest. At the moment we use a solar cover that heats the water up about 10 to 15 degrees. We would like to swim as long as possible and as soon as possible therefore we are not shure if we have to shut down the pool and give it a wintercover?? Can we use the solarcover ( kind of bubblewrap) ? do I need different chemicals??? Is there any kind of cleaner for the liner ( at the rail above water!) that helps to protect the liner from getting aged from sun, rain and frost?? To me it seems it needs some extra attention to keep it safe for a few years!? Does it freeze in this area??? Do I need to run the pump then??
I know a lot of questions but had no pool in Germany - too cold -
