Winter Pool Maintenance

Winter Pool Maintenance

1. Keep an eye on your pool

If your pool is covered, remember to periodically remove any debris above the cover and check underneath it to ensure you have no unwanted surprises down there.

2. Balance your water chemistry

In the winter, you should balance your pH, pool water weekly addition kill any existing algae and prevent new blooms during the winter. Your sanitizer levels can be reduced during the winter months, while still maintaining the proper water chemistry balance. Link for chemical section here

3. Check on your equipment

Even when your pool is covered and not in use, dirt, pollen and other contaminants can still enter the water. So, remember to keep an eye on the filter gauge, perform backwashing and clean your filter per the manufacturer's recommendations.

4. Beware of freezing weather

So remember keep an eye on your freeze guard to ensure that your pool equipment has circulation when temperatures plummet. This can help you avoid expensive repairs from frozen equipment or plumbing.

5. Clear out unwanted debris

As debris builds up, remember to clean skimmer basket pump baskets, floor cleaner containers and cleaner bags. This will keep your water and equipment cleaner, while also making your life easier in the spring.

6. Clean your pool surfaces

Maintaining clean walls, floors and other pool surfaces will prevent algae growth. Skimming, vacuuming and brushing organic debris on a weekly basis is a great off season pool care habit that will save you time dealing with a green, dirty water in the spring.  Tip: Don’t forget to brush the hard to get areas, including behind ladders, steps and corners.

7. Monitor your water level

Always make sure your pool's water level is correctly topped off to protect your pump and keep the pool primed. The right pool water level can depend on the climate you live in. If you live in a warmer environment, that doesn't experience freezing temperatures, your pool water should almost be filled to the top during the winter. However, if you are located in a cold environment, your pool water should be four to six inches below the skimmer in the winter months. Spending a little time each week on your off season pool care will make a big positive impact on opening your pool this spring and summer.
