I introduced my fried to TFP last year and he’s been enjoying the results since. His pool was on a colder side so I also recommended a solar cover. He got the cover this year. His pool is a weekend only pool, meaning nobody uses it during the week days.
He developed an interesting approach to maintaining his pool. He chlorinates it at the end of the weekend to above normal range level, covers it with solar cover and leaves it as is until Friday night. He doesn’t even run the pump. The cover covers almost 100% of the pool so the loss of chlorine is minimal.
He checks the levels before weekend, chlorinates if needed, runs the pump overnight and vacuums whatever ended up on the pool floor. And that’s it.
Chlorine loss is a percentage of the concentration so higher levels lose more chlorine. Hover, my understanding it’s only pertains to loss from UV. Loss due to organics will be proportional to the actual usage. So he doesn’t experience excessive loss due to higher levels of FC.
Does anyone do something like this? Any thoughts on viability of this method?
