How To Avoid Inground Swimming Pool Damage This Winter

It’s also no secret that winter weather can cause quite a bit of havoc. From traffic to home repairs, it can be very challenging to keep up with the onslaught of winter weather. Many inground pool builders have experienced the effects of harsh winter seasons, which can result in a variety of repairs. When it comes to buying a pool, it’s a huge responsibility that can be very challenging to prepare for. There are some things that can be done to improve your pool’s safety.

When it comes to keeping your pool closed for the winter, it's important to remember to close it properly. Having the water at the right level is important to prevent damage. Also, making sure that the cover is clear and doesn't contain ice and snow is a must. If the cover is too heavy, it will collapse into the pool. If the liner is too thin, it will rip.

It is also important to remove all pool fixtures before you close it. Doing so will help prevent the ladder from breaking off and causing the pool to collapse.

Although vinyl inground pool liners are typically only for around 20 years, they can last for up to 12 years. If you’ve got a liner that’s already been around for a long time, there are some issues with it that can cause major damage to its structure. During the summer months, check your pool to make sure that it will still function properly during the winter season. Having a proper inspection can also help prevent a leak.
