So I live in Charlotte, NC. It doesnt get below freezing here much, but its snowed tonight. The last two nights its been below freezing, and the freeze protector kicked in just fine. Tonight it snowed 2 inches, and the freeze protector did not kick in. In my PJs at 10 at night, I noticed that the pump did not go on so I took a look at my system. It was so cold, the lettering in the digital space was hardly readable. I manually pushed on the filter, but my question is why did the freeze protector not kick on? I did notice there was a "check system" red light on. Could that be it? If so, how do I reset that? Also, if thats the issue do I need to check that constantly? I dont want to pay for a pool service to come out and just hit the reset button and charge me $100.
I cant drain my pool during the winter since its fiberglass, and I have a mesh safety cover thats bolted into the ground. Should I invest in a non mesh one? I find that Im still having to make sure my chemicals are aligned even in the winter. Adding chlorine every other week.
Thanks for your help!
