Winterizing Your Pool

Ft. Lauderdale residents have the benefit of enjoying their pool for a longer season than folks in other states.  But when the weather begins to drop, and you don’t’ wish to get in your pool anymore for the season, you should consider closing it for the winter.

Why Winterize Your Pool?

Properly maintaining your pool during the spring and summer is easy since you’re likely to be out there all the time.  However, when the temperature outside is cooler some homeowners begin to neglect their pool. But protecting it during the off-season is essential for keeping your pool in good working order and free from contamination.

Typically, once the temperature drops and often stays below 65°F, it’s time to winterize your pool. Cold water is more corrosive than warm, and it can damage your pool’s plaster. It’s important to make sure the pool water is properly balanced to safely make it through the winter.

Covering your pool is a great way to avoid large amounts of debris from entering the water and pool system. If your pool isn’t winterized and you’re not tending to it properly during the off-season, then it’ll need to be rebalanced before being up and running again. This is a process that can be difficult for a novice to do correctly. A good winterizing strategy will save time, money, and frustration.
