are you sure you want to do that? Ask your agent. It might be easier to sell if prospective buyers can be sure pool is operational.

If you're not expecting the pool to freeze, I would think all you'd need to do with an indoor pool is turn off the heater (if any), put a cover on it, set the timer on the recirculating pump to be as short as possible (half an hour per day maybe), and check it every couple of weeks to make sure the injector still has chlorine (or bromine or whatever it is).
The cover will reduce the chlorine loss.
With the pool heat off, and a very short pump cycle, it'd probably be a few pennies per day. Which is a small price to pay to make sure that the pool is _obviously_ in good condition for a new buyer, and only needs the heat turned on.
If you're expecting the pool to freeze, hire a pro, because the pool is likely not safe to simply drain _or_ let freeze.

Why don't you fill it with those 58,000 absentee ballots. That should make it real attractive to a prospective buyer. Only a moron would close an indoor pool to save a few bucks while trying to sell a house.
