I live about 8 miles north of the Gulf of Mexico. It will be in the low teens (below freezing) in the morning. It will be record setting, so I'm not sure what to expect. The pump and equipment is in a heated room however I don't know what the temps could do to the pool and everything outside. It hit 32 F at 7:30 pm.

What can I do to prevent damage to the pool, pipes and pump?


Run the pump. If you have a pool cover, put it on.

The pool itself stores a lot of heat.

Moving water is much harder to freeze than water standing still.

  • Thank you. We have a screen enclosure, no cover. We never needed one here before. Thanks again. Jan 7 '14 at 2:42
