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!

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 be using it and you will have peace of mind that your equipment will be protected.
