    Behavior when typing new paragraph in Safari iOS 14.4

    Actually, it’s a Xenforo issue who will point the blame towards Froala, the company who’s supplied the code for the editor on the software. I’ve known about and am hopeful XenForo fixes the bug in our next major update……but I’m not entirely hopeful.

    If liquid chlorine freezes then thaws, does it lose effectiveness?

    While you should be fine, I'd avoid buying a large amount of it. As explained in this post the freezing point of bleach isn't far from what your area saw this last week. I personally suspect buying a few gallons will be just fine, but I wouldn't stock-up just yet.

Unlike so many pool build we’ve seen in the past it appears the builders left you extra plumbing which in your case...

    Few days of below freezing temp. What to do?

    Odds say the surface of your pool will be safe. Every year our pool up in Ohio sees several months where the surface is several inches of ice, and no damage. You’ll be fine I’m sure for the week. Personally my main worry would be the equipment. With the drain plugs open I suspect the water will...
