    Running pool pump with solar cover on

    My pump is running right now with the solar cover on.

    In fact it rarely runs without it, this time of year.

    You can stop SLAMing your pool when you pass the OCLT (You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & You have .5ppm CC's or less) & your water is clear.

    Thanks Guys. Can I leave it as a pool cover all winters and run the pump once in a while.
