Ladder Sand Bags - Winterizing

Postby zunebuggy » Tue 08 Sep, 2009 15:31

In previous years I have drained my above the ground pool below the return line. This year we purchased a kit so we do not have to do this. Also, I have always unscrewed and removed my ladder but I can see that this year, I only need to take off the handrails but... the ladder also is the type that has a sand bag that weighs it down inside the pool so it does not float. Is it necessary to take the sand bag out or can I leave it in. I picture it freezing and the bag breaking and having a sand mess or maybe I am wrong about this. I guess better safe than sorry, but was wondering if anyone has done this year after year with no issue.

Thanks.

The bag cannot freeze at that depth underwater.
