I've been reading through the plethora of topics on Closing and I'm not sure how I will proceed - probably around end of October or once the solar no longer warms the pool. The previous owner's pool service gave me some basic instructions: Drain the Solar, leaving valves open; Shock pool; leave cover OFF & plan to net the leaves a couple times a day as trees shed; continue to run the pump and filter every day - just a shorter length of time; drain off water as the rains fill it.
OK, based on that, would you agree ? We never get enough freezing temps to be concerned about cracking the pool - more typically, the coldest months seldom get below high 30's to lwo 40's ... How much testing & adjusting can I expect to be doing? How much should I run the pump/filter each day (currently about 8 hours).
Oh, and if there is already a link for "warmer weather" closing, please point me to that ... or maybe there should be one created for us in those climates.
