I have an above ground pool with three sets of wedding cake steps and I live in North Florida 5 miles from the coast (but in the woods...such a contradiction ). One day in the winter months it will be a high of 60. The next day it will be a high of 80. Most days the high is at least 70 degrees. We usually have at least one night a winter where the temperature will drop below 32 degrees for a brief amount of time. We get about 11 hours of sunlight a day. Covering the pool would be difficult with the steps in place and I have no way/idea of how to remove or take off of the railings.
1. I don't have to cover the pool or do anything special to the skimmer/filter/pump but just make sure I keep the pump running if the temperature gets below 32 degrees?
2. Should I run the pump overnight if there is a frost warning?
3. I can add the poly 60 as insurance against the chlorine hitting zero?
4. Should I (will I) still run the pump and add chlorine once a week? If so, should I put enough chlorine to jump up to shock level and then let it fall over the week?
That's all for now. Thanks for being so great and nice in answering questions!
