    Filling New Pool

    Does anyone see a problem with putting the solar cover on as I fill up the pool? There is about 2 feet of water right now.
    Also I was told to only fill the pool during the day and not to leave the water run over night.

    Thanks!


    Oh it's a 24' round above ground pool

    Welcome to TFP!

    The initial fill, up to about 8 to 12 inches in the shallow end, should be done during the day when everything is as warm as possible without a cover. Once that first phase is complete it doesn't matter much when you fill it or if you use the cover.
