    Tank ring for pool

    summer waves elite winterization??

    Just bought a Summer Waves elite 20 ft by 48 in from Sam's club. We are wondering what we need to do in the winter? Do we drain the water and take it down? Or can we leave it set up with some water in it over the winter. We live in North Dakota and Winters can get down to -40 below zero ??

I called Hot Springs spas in my local area and explain what was going on and they told me quote the salt Cell only has a life expectancy of 1 to 3 years and it cost $650 to replace plus the $150 travel fee! In theory...
