Pool Maintenance in Winter

You will probably be closing down your pool for the winter months. Proper pool maintenance procedures must be followed, because freezing temperatures can damage pool components if adequate measures aren’t taken. Winter pool maintenance is simple and should be completed as regularly as possible. Here are some tips from Hawkins Pool Service in San Ramon to keep your swimming pool we maintained during winter.

Make sure your pool’s water pH is balanced as to alkalinity, chlorine, water hardness, and other elements. Begin this testing process about a week before you close down the pool. Consult Hawkins Pool Service in San Ramon for specific procedures to follow if you are not sure on how to do this.

Remove, clean, and store all ladders and diving boards. Brush the interior walls and floor with a soft brush approved for vinyl walls. Skim the surface to remove any debris or floating objects, and vacuum according to your manual’s instructions. Clean the skimmer baskets and reduce the pool’s water level a few inches below the skimmer opening. Turn off the filter pump and drain the equipment according to your manual.

Install a winter cover. Some mesh or solid safety covers are typically designed for protecting your pool during winter months. Some can even be custom-made to fit any pool shape, integrating perfectly with your pool area design. These durable covers block sunlight and keep debris out of the pool so it stays clean and ready for spring opening.

You may live in a climate where your swimming pool can be left uncovered during the winter since the temperature does not drop below freezing. If this is the case, then you should maintain your pool even though it is not in use. Dirty pool water can cause many issues to your swimming pool and pose health risks for you and your neighbors.

“They took over our pool maintenance service a year ago and the pool looks amazing. It was covered in black algae before. The lights didn’t work and the heater and pumps were in terrible shape from the prior pool service company. Hawkins Pools Service got the pool turned around and it’s beautiful now. They gave us a very competitive bid for all work. I would recommend them anytime.”
