    Newbie Vac Question

    Located in Pennsylvania. Pool is open and up and running for the season, however, with the cool weather minimal use in the past month. Basically is sitting with the solar cover on. Should I still be brushing and vacuuming weekly or can this be stretched out?

    I'd at least be vacuuming weekly if not more.

    If the water is below 60 degrees and things look relatively clean, you could vacuum a bit less often. If the water is warmer, or there is any significant amount of debris on the bottom, then you should be vacuuming at least weekly.
