    covering above ground pool for winter.

    if i run my pump for 2 hours a day in the summer when my wife and i use it for several hours on weekends, now that we have covered it and no longer using it, for the winter, i will keep checking the chlorine and ad a tab as needed, but do i need to run the pump once a day or can i get by with a couple times a week?
    thx

    What part of the country are you in? Here in PA we cover and have to take all parts inside, pump, hoses, filter, etc so nothing freezes. Don't do anything with it until we open it in the spring.

    24' x 54" Oceanic Round AGP, 1090 Hayward Skimmer, EC-40 Filter system, Automatic Chlorinator. Pool will be in Full sun for most of the day (9am-6pm).
