    Unattended pool for 8months

    The vinyl in ground pool already green and we are about to leaving the country for about another 6 months. I have noticed that the water has gone below about 1.5feet due to heavy sun evaporation. The winter here will just below 0 Celsius . Obvious the pool will be terrible when we coming back but I am just planning to leave the pool like as it is. Any comments?

    I would keep the pool full. Nothing good comes from a half-empty pool.

    How about just drain the pool?

    With a liner pool, at best you would have to replace the liner if you drain completely. It could also result in damage to the walls and/or floor being left empty for extended period of time.

    Yes, as the pool will be left over the winter, it is best to half empty the pool right? Do u need to cover the pool?
