considering not opening my pool 15×25 above ground this year. properly winterized fall 2011. winter heavy duty cover. What would I need to add or do to mantain. Water is always clear every year I open the pool,
A closed pool is a body of stagnant water, and in the heat of the summer, it is a prime place for the growth of algae and bacteria. It can also be a nesting ground for common insects such as mosquitos. It is possible to keep the pool closed during summer months, but just know it will cost much more than usual next time to open. Unfortunately, treating the closed pool during summer months is not practical either because there is no circulation.
