So the motor went out on my pool pump, and I just don't have the means to have it fixed at the moment. So I am going to be closing the pool for the winter. I have been reading on how to close the pool, and my question is, being in north Texas, is the antifreeze necessary? My main concern is we have this freeze coming up tomorrow night (yes I know, way to wait until the last minute!) I wasn't sure if it really got cold enough here.
My pool temps have been in the 60s, I'd almost think that the pool could ride out this freeze, but I don't want to risk it. Especially with the above ground equipment (pipes, filter, heater, pump, etc)
I am in Kaufman, about an hour SE of Dallas.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
