Are you searching for a way to extend the life of your pool during the summer months? If you’re a new pool owner (or even if you’ve had a pool for years), the name of this game is preservation. Learn how to prepare your pool for the onset of cold weather and you’ll keep dirt, debris and algae away, with ease.
Balance Your Pool Chemicals
The most important ‘pool upkeep’ rule for colder weather is balancing your pH levels correctly. Balancing your pool’s chemicals is important for not only safe swimming in your custom Katy or Cypress custom pool, but for your pool’s equipment as well. As a rule of thumb, aim for pH levels that fall between 7.2-7.6. Then, rest assured you’re keeping your pool in great shape until you use it again.
Shock Your Pool to Preserve Your Pools Health
Come Spring, no one likes to find their pool has been covered with algae. To prevent algae from forming during the winter, it’s important to shock your pool by increasing your chemicals. Your custom pool builder Katy can discuss your pool needs, and provide you with the correct chemicals to keep your pool clear and healthy all winter long.
Clean Your Pool to Avoid Stains and Dirt
If you don’t clean your pool before closing it up for the winter, you’ll have unpleasant surface stains to deal with in the spring. Make sure to clean the sides of your pool, the filter (so it performs at its optimal level all season long), and clear away any debris. Pay attention to your water level, as you don’t want it to fall below the skimmer box. Once everything is clean and clear, you’re ready to cover it up!
Invest in a High-Quality Pool Cover For Your Katy or Cypress Custom Pool
Now that’s you’ve done the prep work, it’s time to cover your pool. The right pool cover will protect additional debris, dirt (and even nearby wildlife) from coming into your pool. Invest in a high-quality pool cover that will thoroughly cover every inch of your pool’s design—and have peace of mind that it’s protected all winter long.
