My pool has been dormant and covered since Sept and with the winter thaw beginning up here in New England, does it make sense to pull the cover back and throw a bunch of liquid chlorine in it? With the pumps disconnected there is no way to circulate it, so I thinking its a waste? Any thoughts?

I know you already received a great reply, I want to add:
A number of years ago, I added liquid chlorine in March, per recommendation by the pool store guy.
It bleached the liner because I had no way to circulate it.
Bad advice. Glad you're not adding any in now. :cool:

I didn't add any and just kept it covered. It had a little bit of algae on the sides but wasn't some green cesspool. Cleared up quickly when I opened it up this week.
