In the north, people regularly winterize their swimming pools. However, Southerners are known for mocking those in snow-filled states for having to do so. That’s because, in Texas, it’s completely normal to leave a pool open year-round. That was until this recent winter storm hit the area. Now, as the ice is thawing, homeowners realize just how damaging the winter weather can be, with broken heaters, filters and pumps, plus cracks in the pool itself.
What Went Wrong?
Rolling blackouts only made the freezing temperatures worse. Without the ability to circulate the water, it was quick to freeze. When water freezes, everything expands, leading to damage when the thawing starts to happen*.
