Is there anything different I need to do or be aware of this winter in regards to water balance and care of a new diamond brite plastered pool? I will be keeping my pump continuously most of the winter. I do have a freeze protection system set up too. I will not be covering it and was wanting to know what everyone does with their pool that keep it open. Temp in the winter time does get below freezing occasionally. I was also curious if I plugged off two of my 3 skimmers would the lines freeze if it got below freezing? The water does circulate, but the farthest skimmer doesn't pull much water even with reducers on the other two skimmers. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.
I do have a fountain and will not run it much over the winter. Keeps jacking with my pH.
