    They hold water.

    I would treat it when it's time to use it and keep them out of the light.

    I have a intex swimming pool 6500 gallons that I keep 3/4 full even through the winter time with a cover on it. It can freeze and thaw no problem. I have a salt water system hooked up normally to it but drain and fill when it comes fall.
