Pool Upkeep Year Round
Most people only consider the upkeep for their pool during the summer months when the pool is getting the most use. A pool is a year round commitment, however. There are important special jobs that need to be done for just about every season of the year.
Summer and Winter are the most important upkeep months. This is because hotter weather and colder weather have a great effect on your pool. Therefore, it is time to start thinking about winterizing your pool. Winterizing is a process that helps protect your pool against build up and corrosion, as well as keeping everything cleaned up and ready to go for next pool season. It usually takes about a week, so you have time, but it needs to be done before the weather gets cold enough to freeze water not just in the pool, but in the pipes and filters.
During the winter you don’t have to do much but keep an eye on your winter pool cover. You will want to monitor it for rips or tears. You should also monitor the ground around your pool for cracks. As water freezes, it expands and can cause a lot of damage.
The better care you take of your pool, the longer it will last. Not to mention a pool that is well taken care of is safer and looks great.
