I have decided not to "close" my pool for the upcoming winter since I live here in the Florida panhandle and our winters are not too bad(nobody actually does close down here). I have read alot of posts here on the forum talking about winter pool care but I still have some simple questions. Mainly, at what point temp. wise can I drop down my pump time and how much can I drop down on the pump time? I have already gone to about 14 hours on low speed of a 2 speed pump and our temps here have just now gotten cool. The other thing is the daily chlorine routine. I know that I can keep testing the water to see where the FC is , but I don't want to have to keep doing that during the off season. What should I be expecting to do with the chlorine routine now that my water is 70ish? Do I have to keep adding daily? (using 10% bleach). Also, how important is CYA at this point as I think my CYA level has dropped a few ppm's with the crazy amounts of rain we've had here last week. (over 15 inches and I have had to drain a TON of water from the pool). I may have less than 30ppm on the CYA but I don't have any reagent right now to test that. Should I worry about the CYA this time of year or wait till spring?
