I have seen a few threads on busted AGPs due to freezing water rupturing sidewalls. What can be done to reduce / eliminate this issue other than removal of all ladders, steps, and what not.
Also, is this a northern states thing where they have "real winters" or has anyone on here from Oklahoma or Texas area where our winters are fairly mild had or heard of damaged AGPs from winter? I do know my intex froze last year for about a week, not sure if it was solid or not, I just know i gave the sidewall a light bump with my foot and it was frozen.
Being that we just spent 15K on our new pool, I just want to take any precautions I can every year to insure this doesnt happen.
