How to Properly Close Your Pool For The Winter From Gutierrez Pool Plastering, Scotch Plains, New Jersey

Pools require regular maintenance, and those that aren’t well cared for can quickly fall into disrepair. If you have a pool, follow this simple guide provided by Guiterrez Pool Plastering in New Jersey to make sure your pool stays in beautiful shape while it's closed down for the winter season:

  • Check the chemical balance: Before closing your pool for the season, it’s important to run a chemical test. If the chemicals in the pool are not properly balanced, the water can become corrosive and produce heavy calcium deposits. If you need assistance balancing the chemicals in your pool, call in a pool professional.
  • Make sure your pumps and motors keep running: It may seem intuitive to turn off your pumps and motors in the winter, but it’s actually better for your pool if they continue to run at regular intervals. This helps keep the chemical balance in your pool at an ideal level, and makes it easier to re-open your pool once the weather is warm again.
  • Invest in a high quality pool cover: There are several types of pool covers, including mesh, retractable, and fully solid covers. Choosing the right pool cover for your needs is easiest if you visit a swimming pool retailer or service company, and ask their opinions. Pool covering needs can vary depending on your climate, how many trees are in your yard, and how long you intend on having your pool closed.
