OK, I admit it. Cows scare me. Just too much of a city girl, I guess.

5/17/2018: Retired a second time, this time from my volunteer Admin duties. After 10 years of being on the team, and 40,000+ posts, the time just seemed right. It has been such fun to work with all of our Mods and Admins and I plan to stick around as a regular member.

Especially down the road when we might stay away longer, 12-13 weeks, I'm thinking of looking into a modified close/open. Turn off pump and cleaner, cover, but do not drop the water level or do anything else. When time comes to use again, add water, balance chemicals, and turn it on.

The only downside to this idea I can see is that the guy we pay to watch the house brings his family to use the pool and we would probably have to increase the amount we pay him since it is part of the deal.

Has anyone ever tried this? Any advice?
