Hi all. Well, we've decided that it's time to remove the pool. It's just not cost effective to keep it and after much deliberation, we landed here. While we plan out the best way to remove it and coordinate with the excavators, what should I do with the pool? The pump is dead, so it's just going to collect bugs, frogs, algae, etc, and it will be several weeks before any movement is made on removal. And I have two small kids so I also need to keep in mind safety.
Here are the options that I see:
1) Leave water level as-is, replace the winter cover
2) Drain water level, replace winter cover
3) Drain water level, no cover
