Just so, should I cover my pool after shocking?

It is generally a good idea to remove the cover when shocking (high chlorine levels). If it is a solar blanket it will heat the pool during the day. fyi, what i do is put the bleach in and let it run for at least 2 hours so it's not sitting on top when i put the cover back on.

One may also ask, can I cover my pool with the filter on? If you're keeping almost all debris out with a cover, the filtration need is all but eliminated. Pumps also serve to “stir” the water, which helps distribute chemicals better throughout the pool, minimizing localized algae blooms, etc. You may find one or possibly two one hour runs per day is enough with the cover on.

Then, how long can you leave solar cover on pool?

three years
