To keep the heat in and the chlorine from dicipating, you should use a solar cover. Heavy rains will cause the ph level to change and the chlorine level to drop-more chemicals. If you have a lot of trees, plan on heating more and cleaning more.<br/><br/>Pools are a lot of maintenance and can be costly. Ask a couple of local pool installers for referrals. Call those people and find out if they are pleased with the installer and what their annual maintenance costs are.
