I live in TN, with some freezing temps in winter, and I have never closed my pool. I do have a freeze timer that kicks on when temps get cold to protect the pipes, but I was just curious if anyone removes their SWG over the winter? Seems a bit overkill, but being it is out of the ground it is much more susceptible to freezing. I guess it is one thing to break a pipe if something goes wrong, but I would hate to ruin my new SWG. It does have unions on either side that would make it fairly easy to remove. Just curious what others are doing.
