    Pool pump and year round

    We purchased the 16 foot pro series. Can we leave it up year around in Temps that can go down to 20 and some snow, maybe 1 to 3 inches? Our pump F1500c pump died on us after just 6 weeks. Is there a better pump to use that will work with our side skimmer pump and flap? Also does anyone have suggestions on type of dirt to put pool on before setup?

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    I have no experience, but there are many members that leave their AG pools up through the winter.

    The pool needs to be installed on a compacted level foundation. You should never try to build-up a low side.
