Okay, I have searched and came up with several opinions on this so now I am asking what you all do for winter pool care.
We have an inground gunite pool and this is our first year as pool owners here in Keller. We will not be covering our pool for the winter, but what do you do about running the filter and vac system? We have a pool company take care of the chemicals on a weekly basis, so I don't need help with that, just need to know what to do about running it. BTW, the filter and vac are both on seperate timers and can be adjusted. Any help would be great!

I serviced pools for a long time. I agree that you need to run your pool for only a hour or two at the most in the winter time. Most people let their pools get green and that can cost around 1k to get back to normal.

Heed these words. Pooper Scooper speaks the truth. I speak from experience, sadly!
