    Help! Pipes and equipment might freeze

    I am finally closing my pool after giving up on a safety cover and buying a tarp. My pool builder was supposed to close it today so I drained the water down.

    Closing below freezing

    This year will be my first close. I am waiting on a winter cover that will like arrive in early November. I live in Canada, and it is likely going to be around-5 Celsius when I close. I have a gas heater so I can keep that on intermittently to prevent it from freezing, but I'm concerned that...

    Rust in concrete saw cuts

    Hi everyone, My concrete deck was poured about a month ago. They did saw cuts in it and it looks like they must have hit some rebar in one of the cuts that went too deep. I can see rust forming in the cut now. Is there something i should do to prevent the rust from spreading? I was thinking a...
