We have not swam for over 3 weeks now and not likely to until the spring. Our pool is scheduled to be shut down oct 23 as we have a spill over spa that we like to use 2 or 3 times a week.
What is recommended for running the pool and spa at this time. Daytime temps are between 55 and 68 basically and nights can go down to 38 or less. Whats the rule of thumb for running the filters at this time and is it very important to be so proactive with chemical checking? I still have the chlorinator running but basically only run the filter maybe 2 or 3 days a week for a few hours, which means the chlorine is only getting in on those times. If we decide to use the spa I give it a blast of chlorine before we use it and circulate the water in from the pool. Are there any dangers in what I am doing? your thoughts?
