Not sure if I posted this in the right spot, I live in El Paso, and do not "close" the pool. i.e. drain, add antifreeze etc. for the last 2 winters I have reduce pump operation to 4 hours, at night, and test the water every 2 weeks, I have notice in the winter months the pool hardly uses any clorine (BBB method), I do keep my solar cover on, my question is, do I even have to run my pump at all?, or maybe a couple hours a week, my pool temp is 47, does algae grow in this low of temp? I know I would still have to have the power on for the freeze protection but do I need to run it every day?
