Pool access is great in the summer time when there are a variety of activities and events to invite friends and family to. Yet every season comes to a close, so as summer cools down, you should be prepared to wrap up your pool for the fall. Familiarize yourself with these essential end-of-summer pool prep tips from Gutierrez Pool Plastering.
Tidy Up Your Pool – Before you decide to clean up your pool for the fall, be sure to conduct a final test of your pool's water.
Vacuum Your Walls – Brush or vacuum the walls of your pool and clean the skimmer basket and lint trap.
Clean Your Filter – You should use a special filter cleanser. Filters that are stored and not cleaned will develop a heavy build-up of dirt, making it hard to cleanse during the spring season.
Winterize Your Pool – Buy a winterizing kit, complete with winter shock and algaecide. This should be applied around the pool edges while your pool's pump is running for one hour each.
Anti-Freeze – To keep pipes clean and the equipment functioning like new, use anti-freeze. Never use automotive anti-freeze, as it could damage your pool.
Protect Your Pool – Be sure to cover your pool to protect it from seasonal weather changes during the off months.
