Tips from our experts: Closing your inground pool!
Inground Pool Winterizing Checklist
In our area where we experience freezing weather, it is important that your pool be properly “winterized”. The following check list will help you review procedures.
Before you winterize
- Pool must be thoroughly vacuumed and cleaned. Dirt and debris left in the pool over long periods of inactivity can cause staining and be much harder to clean in the spring.
- Pool water must be at the proper pH, Total Alkalinity and Calcium Hardness levels.
- Chlorinated pools must be shocked with a heavy dose of shock and the proper size winterizing kit used.
- Filters (sand, DE, cartridge) must be flushed and chemically cleaned with a chemical Filter Cleaner.
