I ordered a safety cover for my pool and attached spa about 2 weeks ago. Im still waiting for it to come in and my pool guy to install. I live in NY. Should take another week or two.
Its VERY cold in NY right now. Anywhere from 25degrees to 30degrees. Wind chill makes it feel colder.
My pool guy (who is a genius) told me not to worry about it. He says ground temps are still high enough where I dont have to worry, and just to keep it running as much as possible.
I dont mind that. I have it running 24/7 right now. But my concern is the spill-over-spa. That isnt running. Its raised about 8 inches out of the ground.
Since I cant really run that and the pool, its pretty much off. The top layer of water keeps freezing. I just break it up, run it for a little while, and then turn the pool back on.
Is there a significant risk of the pipes at the spa freezing and having problems?
He says no. But I would like some 2nd, 3rd opinions.
