If you have an in ground pool, in freezing weather, make sure you leave your on pump constantly to circulate the water, if not you could have damage to your pump, and breaking water pipes. The water might freeze on top of the pool, but underneath the water should still be circulating, if not find something to break the ice on top. Freezing pool water is normal. Unfortunately, dented sides and losing sand are not. You probably have a leak that is squirting the sand out, and sucking in the sides. or the cove failed. Either way, if it was professionally installed, they screwed up. I heard that if you filled about 5-6 liter bottles half way with sand and placed in your pool, the pool water would not freeze due to the bottles floating around and constantly breaking up the water so as not to freeze.

Why should you disassemble an above ground pool during winter?

Not all above ground pools have to be disassembled during winter, although it is a good idea to drain them. Water expands when it freezes, and if the water is trapped in a closed container or in a crack, the expansion can break the container or the material surrounding it. Pipes often break, when water inside them freezes.

Should you tie the pool water leveler to the water softener?

You can, if the water presently in the pool is 'hard' - but be very careful to keep an eye on the Calcium Hardness of the pool water. If you filled a pool with water from the softener, the water would be hungry for calcium and drag it out of the pool walls, making them feel and look like sandpaper. Calcium hardness should be kept within 200-275ppm. best to use regular water for topup and keep the pool water properly balanced (see your local pool store).
