We still have our winter cover on. We siphoned most of the water off the cover. Yesterday I hooked up the pipes to the pump/filter so I could bring the water level back up. Slipped my hand under the cover (there's a gap because we couldn't get the wire any tighter). Here are my results with 2-3 more inches of water to add yet:
56 temp (dang that's cold)
I know the temp was closer to 70 before I started adding water. Is it feasible/advisable to keep the cover on until the water gets closer to 70? I would keep an eye on the chemicals and start running the pump/filter today or tomorrow if you think this is a good idea. I am so not looking forward to our weather forecast of "rain/maybe we'll hit 75" one day next week.
