Is your pool winter ready?
While our pool winterization professional will handle all of the necessary actions to prepare your pool for winter, there are some steps that you can take to aid us in the process.
- Covering your pool: Having a safety cover installed can drastically reduce the number of leaves that end up in your pool, making it easier to close in the winter. Safety covers also greatly reduce the risk of drowning while the pool is covered.
- Preparing pipes and plumbing: Your pool’s piping needs to be winterized to avoid freezing and bursting. Your pool equipment, including pumps, filters, heaters, etc. is also susceptible to bursting in the winter. Make sure you have a freeze guard on your equipment to trigger your pump to come on and circulate water to keep it from freezing and bursting your pipes and equipment.
- Fighting winter algae: Algae can still bloom even when the water is cold. A winterizing algaecide should be incorporated into your pool cleaning.
