Accordingly, should I put chlorine in my pool during the winter?
Though the growth rate of algae slows down as water gets colder, we recommend keeping the free chlorine level between 2-4 ppm, as mentioned above. In some areas it’s possible to see steady temperatures above 60 degrees in January or even February, giving algae a chance to grow. Don’t risk it.
In this manner, what does seasonally heated pool mean?

Does draining a pool damage it?
First, if the draining is done at the wrong time or under the wrong conditions, you can actually risk damaging your pool structure and liner. All the water from your pool needs to go somewhere when it’s drained, and that usually means the ground.
Ideally, your pool’s chemistry should remain as balanced as possible throughout the winter. Keeping everything balanced is easily accomplished by testing the water at least once per week. There’s a low chance that you’ll need to add chlorine as long as the pool isn’t being used and there is no water circulation.
Seasonal pool means a pool that is opened for a few months during the calendar year, is then closed and reopens the next year during the same approximate time period.
In warmer climates, Intex advises to keep your pool up, if you prefer. However, you must winterize the pool when keeping it full throughout the winter. If your area maintains tropical climates all year long, you may not need to winterize your pool at all, especially if you use your pool on a regular basis.
A saltwater pool is an alternative to a traditional chlorine pool. Although you don’t add chlorine tablets to a saltwater pool, it does still contain chlorine. It just has a smaller amount that’s generated through the filter system. A saltwater pool contains 10 times less salt than the ocean.
