Pools have different upkeep requirements from season to season. Knowing how to take care of your pool in the winter is imperative for its longevity. The professionals from San Diego Pools—the experts in pool construction San Diego residents trust for unmatched expertise and high-quality service—offer this advice on how to prepare your pool for the winter.
Going through the process of winterizing your pool can help in various ways. If your pool is properly prepared, you won’t have to replace burst pipes or cracked tiles. Your pool will be safe from freezing temperatures, and you’ll save significant money on maintenance, utilities, and supplies if your pool is properly prepared. You’ll also save yourself work when warmer weather comes around again.
The process of winterizing may seem daunting, but it’ll be worth it. Here are some key steps to getting your pool ready for winter:
Pool owners in California aren’t advised to drain their pools to winterize them. During the rainy season, the ground around the pool may become saturated with water. If the pool is drained for the season, it will be lighter than normal. The water-logged ground will begin to exert upward pressure on the pool shell and may push it out of the ground entirely.
If you find this process confusing or overwhelming, you may wish to reach out to a respected pool company or maintenance professional in your area who can help you keep your pool in pristine condition during the winter and all year long.
