    First winter with BBB

    Now that I've spent my first summer with a wonderfully sparkling clean trouble-free pool, thanks to you all!.........I need some winter advice.

    I read the "close pool" section, but we don't close them here in southern Mississippi, I just run the pump at night if temps are going to be anywhere close to freezing.

    My question is about keeping the pool balanced during that time. Do I keep the chlorine levels the same as in the summer? Any other advice would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    You'll use a lot less chlorine, but yes, you'll need to keep the levels the same.

    Just make sure to remember to run the pump if it's predicted to freeze at night if the timer or automation doesn't have freeze protection.
