    Water Temp Question

    This may be in the wrong section. I am in South MS, so I dont really close my pool. I chose this year to turn off my SWCG when the temps drop and have been using liquid chlorine. What water temp should I turn it back on at? Should I have just let it run all winter?

    borates?

    got ya... wife is at home all day and ours can be seen from inside the house. it all runs off the main pump so there is no difference in energy use. I'll look into putting actuators on them so that they only run during times we are up.
