Fiberglass pools are known for their durability and low maintenance, but many pool owners may wonder if cold weather can affect these pools. The answer is yes, fiberglass pools can be affected by cold weather, but the effects are typically minimal and can be easily addressed.
When water temperatures in a fiberglass pool drop below freezing, the water can expand and cause the walls of the pool to become slightly misshapen. This can cause the pool to become less structurally sound and can even lead to cracks or leaks in the pool shell.
However, these effects are typically minor and can be easily fixed. Pool owners can prevent damage from cold weather by properly maintaining their pools and making sure that the water is properly balanced and heated. Additionally, pool covers can be used to insulate the water and prevent it from freezing.
