I never cover the pool. Why would I do that. Keep the balance and keep it clean

Covering a pool in this climate can cause more trouble than it's worth. The biggest, and only issue that would make someone want a pool cover, can be the December leaf drop, where cleaning will be a daily chore. But if you don't live in a mature area with mature trees, this will be a non-issue for you.

Don't cover it. When it gets cooler we have the pump serviced, cut down on the time it runs and the chemicals and it is just fine.

I have a mature lot ith half dozen pecan and pine trees so leaf drop is a major PITA. That is whay the pool has a cover. I bought the house with it. So far in the three years I have owned the pool uncovering the pool and clean up is not so bad, usually a couple days and it is back sparkling clean.
