Getting ready for the winter season can be a stressful and time-consuming process, so make sure to do it properly. Not doing so can cause your pool to look its worst during the upcoming season.
If the weather is still warm, then you can keep your pool open a bit longer. Before the season's over, it's important to close your pool and keep it in good shape. Here are some important steps to follow to ensure your pool is protected.
Put The Accessories In The Storage
Winter is a great time to store pool accessories. This will protect them from getting damaged by the freezing conditions.
Properly Clean The Pool
Before your pool is closed, it will need to be cleaned to remove algae, grime, and other impurities. This is done to keep the water looking great. These visitors will cause staining and growth in the pool, especially if they are left in the pool all winter. It is also important to keep the water at a proper pH level to prevent algae growth.
A good shock treatment with chlorine will kill algae and prevent bacteria from growing in the pool. Winterizing chemicals such as algaecide can also help prevent algae growth.
Keep An Eye For Water Level
Never completely drain the water from your pool. The proper drainage level should be below the skimmer.
Drain Your Equipment
All equipment in the pool needs to be drained to prevent the water from freezing. This procedure also includes draining the filter, pump, and plumbing.
Install The Cover
Since the pool safety cover is designed to protect your pool from dirt and debris during the winter season, it should be thoroughly inspected to make sure it is not damaged.
These pool closing services will keep your pool sparkling clean and safe all winter long. They will also remove algae, dirt, and dead spots from your pool.
