    Pool moved to new house now what

    We had our 1yr old pool taken down and moved to our new house yesterday and today. On my last pool build a year ago we had rolled shingles put down with sand ontop of that. This time we used our old liner in the bottom a layer of sand and then armorshield with cove. Last year the weather was warmer at this time and we opted to fill the pool completely and get it balanced with salt and what not. My BIG question this go round is should we fill the pool completely or fill just below the skimmer and return...then put the winter cover on until spring? Do we leave the water as it is and not add anything until we take the cover off?

    You will need to add bleach until the water temp is consistently below 60 degrees to prevent algae. If you fill to below the skimmers you will need to mix the bleach in by brushing the pool. You can fill it up completely and run the pump if you choose. Once the water is consistently below 60 degrees you can bump the chlorine to shock level and cover the pool. After you open in the spring you can add salt and whatever else the water needs.
