Hello, I've been looking around for suggestion for this, but can't find anything so far (sorry if this was answered already): we just closed our pool, installed the mesh cover (Merlin, Smartmesh). Last year every couple of weeks or so, I had to go and pop 5 or 6 of the cover retaining spring clips to check the water level, sometime more often in case of big rain.
The guy closing the pool advised to put a pump on one of the pool stairs, and leave it there for the winter connected to some hose, so that it automatically maintains a safe level. This is quite a harsh environment (high chlorine) to leave a pump in.
Anybody doing the same? Any pump recommendation? Also what happens during severe frost?
Thanks very much for any suggestions/experience with this
