Thread: Keeping pool open

    Keeping pool open

    We live in Northeast TN. Our pool is about 2 years old. We have never closed the pool. We keep it open and usually heat it up to about 94 degrees and swim 1 or 2 weekends a month. Is never closing a problem? Should we still occasionally blow out the lines?

    Thanks!

    No reason to close the pool unless you live in an area that gets a long hard freeze every winter. As long as you keep the water sufficiently chlorinated the lines will be clean. The only reason they are blown out is to prevent the pipes from breaking due to ice expansion.
