We just moved to a new home in a rural area with a salt water IG pool. We have never owned a pool before, so lots to learn. The house uses well water (filtered through a whole house r.o system). We are not hooked up to city water so the cost to top up the pool in the summer is quite high since it requires having bulk water delivered (at least that is what the previous owner told me he did).
We live in Ontario and our swimming season is coming to an end, meaning time to winterize the pool.
From what I have learned thus far, the water level of the pool will need to be lowered as part of the closing process. Can this water be saved for reuse next season? The property has two cisterns(not sure about their sizes). One isn't being used so I am thinking that the pool water can be pumped into that and then pumped back into the pool in the spring.
I have searched online and there doesn't seem to be any precedence to doing this, which makes me question myself. The closest relevant information refers to temporarily storing pool water in bladders during pool repairs, but nothing about storing it for 6+ months. Does this make any sense? Any precautions to worry about?
Thanks for your time.
