I moved from Scotland 3 months ago & am just about to buy a property with a 20x40ft irregular shaped inground pool with an automatic filter & clorination system ( see pic ) The property is just north of Houston and im not sure if I need to do anything for winterizing over the "winter" I use "" here cause Ive been told it never even snows here let alone freezing solid like I am used to back home..
I have read through many of the posts about it on this site and Im getting the feel that all I should need to do here is leave the pump running when it gets near freezing temperatures, which hopefully shouldnt be very often ?
The previous owners didnt have a pool cover of any sort and just left their system running at the same settings all year, is this safe ?
Should I get a cover ? what kind would be the most cost effective ?
Id appreciate any advise,
