At present we have our pool looked after throughout the year, however, costs are quite high particularly as it is not used October – March.
The pool has a solar powered pump which will keep the water moving, the pool is not currently covered, if the pool was to be closed during the months October to March, with little or no attention, what would the consequences be?

Hello… We are in the same situation. It is so expensive to keep a pool going when the property is empty for parts of the year. Our experience has been that the water levels drop considerably, and therefore we do not leave the pump going. It is a big clean-up when needed, but if someone can fill the pool with water before you are due to visit, it cuts the job down to clean it and means the water has warmed up for you (ours is well water fed / tanker which takes time to do or arrange). Last year we were lucky enough to have a friend living in Spain who cleaned it for us for minimal cost…. this year, we will do it on arrival!!! I guess it’s down to the beach for the first few days! If anyone has any tips or hints on improving this situation, I would be grateful.. We have considered a salt-water pool as we have a dual pump, but not sure how much maintenance this needs?

I have a pool with a kind of plastic lining all around. With the passage of time there is now a kind of stain all around at the top end of the pool where the water level is maintained. I have made all efforts to clean it & even tried to clean it with recommended solution. But no joy. Any suggestion ?
