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!

The answer will depend on where in the world the pool is.

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!

if you add salt to water, it will freeze at a lower temperature.. i do not think it is possible at a temperature below zero degrees.

Yes. Depending on the fish, but all fish can freeze if the temperature of the water reaches a certain temperature.

Anything could freeze if the temperature is low enough. All oils will freeze if the temperature is sufficiently low. If you meant Will baby oil freeze in a regular domestic refrigerator freezer compartment? The answer is no.
