I have a new pool this year, and was wondering if I need to do anything for winterizing in Northern California? We don't get snow here, but occasionally weather do drop below freezing temp. I know I need to clear the water from the solar panels. My pool builder said the pool pump will kick in if it detects freezing temp and that I should run the SWG as usual during winter.
If I am not gonna use the pool, should I just stop running the SWG so that it prolong the life of the unit? Should I use Pool Winterizing kits to close the pool?
I know the 'Pool School' have steps on winterizing but wondering if that is more relevant to places that snow/freeze often?
What do California users here do during Winter?
Or should I forget about winterizing, just leave it running as usual and make full use of my pool by jumping in with 7mm wetsuit?
Appreciate your feedback.
Thank you in advance.
