The previous owners didn't even have a cover for the pool and they always kept it open. We are going to attempt to do the same. We do a lot of outdoor entertaining in this backyard and the pool is the centerpoint so having a cover over it would hurt the ambiance a little. Anyway, in lieu of going and buying a cover, we're just gonna see how it goes. We have a couple of trees so I'm already making leaf clean up in the pool part of my daily routine.
Any tips from anyone? I'm expecting the chlorine demand to go way down (it already has) and hopefully as it gets colder and all the leaves are off the trees I can lower my pump run time. As far as TFPC guidelines, does everyone still recommend testing and adding sodium hypo everyday? Or will the chlorine demand go down so much that this can be done on a less frequent basis?
