Is you pool ready for winter?
#1
Thumbs Up 
The water temp is down to 82 degrees a lot of days.

I have:
- reduced the amount of time the filter runs
- reduced the amount of chlorine I put in
- stopped algicide treats
- placed heavier blankets on the pool deck

Cool

Maybe so, but the wife pays for it- electric and chems. I just add in tabs as necessary and brush. Nice to look at and try new flies in. Rolleyes

Pool = 17,000 gallons of grey-man emergency prep water

Plus, it's awesome for swimming, barbecues, and general skinny dipping!

How can you make pool water potable for human consumption? Lots of different chemicals, etc in the water. Or just for flushing, general cleaning, maybe hygiene.

One way of making pool water safe to drink is distill it. You can make most water safe to drink through distilling it. The process leaves just water (most cases, occasionally in highly polluted water some chemicals do make it through the process and additional filtering is required.)

Here is a simple setup you can get from Amazon

if it gets that bad that your drinking pool water, I don't think the chems will be the major issue esp with the ways of getting chlorine out like distilling

It is priority #1 for hygiene, bathing, etc

That said - really, the only chemical in it is chlorine and that goes away pretty quick. Don't add chlorine for a week and the level will fairly low.
