I needed to pump water off the pool cover and then realized that my outlets around the pool were turned off when the pool was closed last week. Was it ok to turn my ET back on and the pool lights/outlets breaker? Because that's what I did. I left the breaker off for heater/pump/swg. Is it ok to leave that part on until the first snow so that I can continue using the outlets? Or should I turn them back off and use an extension cord (which to me defeats the purpose of having so many outlets)? Thanks.

I can't see any problem with turning on the ET power as long as you don't turn on the breakers for the Pumps, SWCG, or Heater...
