I've been trying to find info on checking pool chemical balances with a solid cover on in Texas weather. I suppose I can start checking once a week and see how things change, but i thought i'd check and see if there's any opinions here on checking chemical levels in southern weather with a solid cover on.
Does the ph and free chlorine still need to be checked regularly, or can either be ignored until you take off the cover (from Oct until May)? My guess would be just to check ph every so often since there's no sunlight getting in the pool, but any opinions?
On a side note, do you even have to run the pool pump with a solid cover on for any reason?
Thanks a lot,
