Me and my wife are planning on purchasing a ProSeries 16' X 48" Metal Frame Swimming Pool from Walmart http://www.walmart.com/ip/Summer-Esc...Q%26A+Exchange. My main concern or question is in the winter. We do not want to take it down for the winter. So what I was thinking of doing was, when I set this up I am going to put play sand down for the bottom of the pool and place concrete pavers or something under the feet of the poles. Now in the fall I would like to drain the pool down to 1/4 full or 1/2 full and remove the filter, hoses, and all accessories. I figured I should leave the cover off so the snow and ice don't push down on it. We do get spurts of cold temps here in Ohio and was wondering if anyone thinks this would be ok?
Thanks I am new to the forum. Hope to learn a lot from all of you.
