Pool Chemical Maintaining During Winter

Balancing the various elements of the water's pH helps keep the quality of the pool water at its optimum.

During the cooler months, it's important to maintain your pool's cleanliness. Doing so can prevent various issues from happening.

Let's pay attention to:


Algaestats And Algaecides

These chemicals are commonly used to control algae growth. They should be used along with algaecides to kill algae during winter. Even though a pool cover can keep algae at bay, it can still cause algae to thrive. So, it’s always a good idea to apply algaecides before the pool is closed for winter.



Chlorine complements the activities of algicide and algaestats and should be used every time with each algaestat/algaecide application.


Winterizing Agents

Winterizing a pool can be done in various ways. There are various products on the market that can help you keep the pool clean and balanced.


Chemicals That Correct Your Pool’s Saturation Index

The Langelier Saturation Index measures the interactions between the various components of water, including pH, dissolved solids, and temperature. A positive Langelier Saturation Index results in scale deposition. A negative index can cause corrosion within the pool.
