Wanted to break this out as it's own topic as I gotta figure others will want to know more about how/whether/ when to address treating the pool over the winter. My contact from Aqivations, the plaster manufacturer for Hydrazzo, stated that;
"It is imperative to check and adjust chemicals in a covered pool during the closed months when ever the water isn’t frozen"
So this winter, I'm going to do this. I'll pull the cover back, and test the water every few weeks. What's next though? As experience suggests, my pH will likely rise. How would I treat it without the pump running?
Can't just throw MA into an un-circulating pool, can I? Even if I diluted it before adding it, that's still not going to distribute well, and possibly even sit in the bottom down by the drain, destroying my plaster.
How do others deal with this?
I'd be most curious to know.
