Hi all - I am a new in ground pool owner and am new to posting in this forum but have been reading for several months now. We are in Arkansas and the freezing temps we are having tonight and over the next several days are very unusual for us. We elected to keep the pool open for the winter but in this frigid weather, we are having trouble keeping the skimmer basket free of ice. At first I thought the thin layer of ice on the surface was breaking up and getting lodged in there, but we are having to clear it every 30 minutes or so. I now feel like it might just be so cold that it is freezing in the basket. Pump is still running and water is circulating so long as we keep clearing it but we are wondering what the best course of action is here. Should we try to drain the pad equipment? I'm concerned it's so cold that the water won't drain out if we try to do it. Should we keep running the pump and stay up all night clearing the basket? I'm just not sure what to do. If anyone is up and has some advice, it would be greatly appreciated!
