    2 weeks to closing

    Hi everyone,
    I can only get the pool company to close the pool in 2 weeks time.
    Should I be running the pump 24/7 until then. We are not going to swim at all.

    Any advice on what to do for the next two weeks to avoid costs yet to not compromise the pool for next season.

    No need to run the pump that much. I would continue maintaining the water pretty much as you did during swim season. Your chlorine demand should drop with the cooler temperatures as well as the reduced sunlight intensity and duration due to the shorter days. Also, do what you can to keep debris (leaves, etc.) out of the pool.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
