    That would not be a good thing to do. I'm in the north east, in PA, and my pool freezes solid. Leaving the steps in means they'll crack and break from the compression of he ice and you'll buy new ones in May.

    I agree it would be a bad thing, SW PA here the pool freezes solid in winter and i also think it will crack the steps.
