Unless you get a pool cover, you can expect leaves and other pieces of debris to fall into your pool. If you go months without cleaning, then your pool is going to be a real mess when summer comes around again. Instead, you should remove debris regularly so that your pool remains sanitary.
The biggest concern with most pools is the development of algae. It can quickly escalate out of control. Fortunately, substances are available that kill algae. Look into getting it if you are concerned about the well-being of your pool.
Inspect it Every so Often
Keep an eye on your pool’s filter and pump. These components can freeze during the winter and malfunction. Prevent damage from occurring in the first place, but if it has already happened, then look into getting replacement parts.
