    One way would be to reduce pump run time.

    I say do nothing. If the water's 60 degrees, no one's getting in anyway. It'll go down eventually with the SWG off. 14 is not all that high for 80 CYA.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    I agree with Richard, but you can turn the SWG off also.
