So moving into a new house, with a lovely green pool as a first time pool owner. I grew up with a pool, and mostly understand the care and terminology. The pool is green right now, with visible dirt/algae. My questions/options that I have:
1.) Should I just let the pool go, as is, over winter? Then just clean and drain it in the spring? I imagine the algae and dirt will get worse.
2.) Can I just cover the pool, green and all, and expect to open the pool to be the same green in the spring? Will the dirt and algae be the same?
3.) Go through the crappy process of getting it blue and clear again and then cover the pool for the winter?
4.) Drain pool completely and cover it? Cover wouldn't stay since no support...Drain the pool completely and leave empty and uncovered?
We are in North Texas, with a very low water table. So no worries of popping a pool out around here. We do get freezing temps, but I'm not worried about the lines bursting at this point.
