We live in Fort Worth Texas and our pool is open and running through the winter. I maintain all levels and the pool looks great. We have two Oak trees that keeps me busy with the net and cleaning out the skimmers but I don’t mind. We are going to me gone for a week and a half over Christmas and I am unsure of what to do.
•Option one is Shut off the skimmers and reprogram the pump for maybe 3 hours a day and deal with the clean up when I return.
•Option 2 is buy a cheap 8-year economy pool cover and just cover it up when I am gone. With this option I am unsure if I run the filter or not under the cover.
Please pass along your recommendations even if there not what I posted. Thanks
BTW I am too new to the area to trust anyone yet to watch the pool while we are gone.
