It’s a sad day when you have to close your pool for winter, especially when warm weather seems so far away. You want to be sure your pool is ready and waiting for you when warm weather returns.
If you use a pool cover, you’ll want to clean your pool before you put the cover on. Once the pool has been covered, keep the cover clean if leaves or other debris pile up. A buildup of leaves and dirt could damage the cover.
Your also need to check under the cover from time to time to make sure there hasn’t been an algae buildup. Test your chemicals weekly and run your pump occasionally, as recommended by Phoenix Pool experts. Clean the filter regularly and don’t forget to check your pool pump and any exposed plumbing to ensure all are working properly and there are no leaks.
Cleaning and checking equipment regularly also apply if your pool isn’t covered. Again, check for algae buildup and run your pool pump occasionally to keep your beautiful pool clean.
Keep an eye on winter temperatures in your area. Freezing weather can damage equipment and cause costly repairs. Ensure equipment has circulation during extreme low temperature.
If you want to use your pool year-round, invest in a pool heater, and you’ll be set to enjoy your investment in any month. Just remember to continue with cleaning and checking equipment.
Your pool is a big investment, and ongoing pool care is a necessity. Spend a little time on pool care each week during winter for your pool’s health and your enjoyment.
