    Higher FC loss to the sun, and more gunk able to fall into the water and consume more of the FC.

    Why not just leave the pool "open" and allow the water to circulate so you can add bleach as needed? The FC should be low and you will not need to run the pump much ... just ensure it runs when the temp is below freezing.
