Forum Title: Leaving pool for 10 months!
So a real annoyance for me but we just bought a house with a pool and now the company has given me a job in the Middle East for 3 years. It means that at the end of this summer, we'll be leaving TX and will only come back next summer for holidays (2 months) and then back out again. So my options: - Pay a pool guy to look after it while I'm gone - Cover and leave it as is and come back to 6ft of green sludge - Empty the pool (is this even possible?) Any other ideas? Is there a strong reason not to leave the pool or empty it?

One fairly good option is to winterize the pool as if you were further north and cover it with a solid cover with an automatic cover pump. This isn't perfect, nothing really is, but it is one of the top options. As long as the cover doesn't collapse into the pool and the pool doesn't leak it will be fairly easy to reopen it when you come back. You will likely get algae, but not so seriously (due to the cover keeping most sunlight out), and easily recovered from.

I agree with covering the pool and interesting it. Good luck n stay safe on your new job site.
