Drained pool

Postby andreapaw » Sun 24 Apr, 2016 11:38

My pool was drained for a couple of reasons (filter malfunction and disgusting water) and now I have a newborn at home and I'd like to leave it that way for the season, since I won't be using it anyhow. My concern is whether this will damage the equipment ? Any precautions I should take?

That depends on what type of pool and the water table
Lack of use could cause things to seize and seals to degrade

If the plaster is already worn, dehydration can cause further damage more quickly.
