I am finding this site to be incredibly informative and I am most appreciative to everyone on here. My brain is filling up with lots of useful info, lol
I had a couple questions that I'm hoping others in similar situations face. I live in Minnesota and just purchased a 16' x 48" Intex Ultra Frame ~5,000 gallon AGP. Comes with ground cloth, cover, ladder, 1500 gph pump. Haven't set it up yet, still finding time to level out the ground. I have read the Seasonal Guide.
1. Curious if anyone leaves their pool up for the winter and winterizes it somehow. I know Intex suggests taking it down and I certainly don't want it to freeze and cause liner damage
2. If I do drain it every fall, in theory I shouldn't have to worry about adding too much stabilizer, correct? Would using the dreaded 1" pucks be completely out of the question?
