At what temperature will a pool freeze?
It depends on if a pool is above or below ground. While air temperature affects a body of water exposed to it, so does the ground temperature. A warm ground will keep your pool from freezing at 32 degrees F. However, an above-ground swimming pool may freeze above 32 degrees F is there is a cold wind. Thus, wind chill will lower the temperature of the pool tank (especially if it is metal) and your pool will freeze faster. Try a propane or wood-fired pool heater. In cloudy Northeastern states, solar heating is ineffective. In fact, today's solar pool heaters are too weak to keep a pool from freezing at sustained below-freezing temperatures. It's always best to drain any pool in a cold winter climate. Good luck and happy swimming!
Water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit (which is 0 degrees Celsius). The factors which might change the temperature at which your pool pipes may freeze are: - other materials (such as salt) which are dissolved in the water - the rate of flow (if any) of the water through the pipes - the pipe diameter - the insulating properties of the pipes themselves - whether the pipes are buried underground Good luck with your pool!
How do you maintain an outside saltwater pool when the temperature outside gets down to the single digits?
The water is going to have a lower freeze point but when the air temperature get down to 32 degrees you have to have the system circulating. Once you get to the single digits all bets are off as far as freeze damage. The salt generator will only make chlorine if the water temperature is above 50 degrees. My recommendation is when it gets that cold winterize the pool it is highly unlikely you will…
It can crack the pool and any pipes that has water in them that freeze. a way of protecting the pool is to float drums in a line along the middle of the pool there by leaving an unfrozen track along the middle into which the ice can expand. You should definitely empty the filter and exposed water pipes.
Why is the temperature needed to freeze ocean water lower than the temperature to freeze the surface of a fresh water lake?
Yes and no. Yes cola CAN freeze at a temperature under water because any drink WILL freeze from being to cold. Like my grandpa's coke was to cold that an iceberg grew in it. And NO it CAN NOT freeze lower then the temperature of water because most drinks can hold the coldness for as long as possible.
