I'm about to become a new pool owner, they dig next week. Just wondering if I should fill the pool to the normal depth and stabilize the water condition before closing which will be costing more in water and chemicals to have to drain it down in a few weeks. Or just fill to below the returns and cover for the winter. Just wondering if i will have a very hard time gaining water quality in the spring with out it being good to close. My chance of swimming in it is very slim being it's going down to 40f at night, the heater would need to run alot. If i just fill to the returns and cover what chemicals should i put in.
Some are wondering why put the pool in now? Cheaper and ready to go come spring.
Any help would be great.
