Winterize your pool to protect your investment

Winterizing your swimming pool is an important step to ensure your pool stays in good condition and is ready for use when the warmer months arrive.

Here are some steps you can follow to winterize your pool:

  1. Clean the pool: Before you start the winterizing process, it’s important to thoroughly clean the pool. Use a pool brush to remove any debris and scrub the walls and floor.
  2. Check the chemical levels: Test the water and make sure that the pH, alkalinity, and chlorine levels are balanced. Adjust the chemical levels as necessary.
  3. Lower the water level: Drain the water level to below the skimmer level to prevent any damage caused by freezing.
  4. Remove pool equipment: Remove any pool equipment, including ladders, toys, and floats. Store them in a dry and protected area.
  5. Cover the pool: Use a pool cover to keep debris out of the pool and prevent evaporation.
  6. Maintain the pool during winter: Even though you may not be using the pool, it’s important to maintain it during the winter months. Check the pool chemistry regularly and keep the cover in good condition.

By following these steps, you can ensure your pool stays in good condition during the colder months in Australia.
