How to Winterize Pool?

  1. Clean your pool one last time

    Before you winterize, clean your pool. Vacuum the entire pool, brush down the walls , and skim the surface.

  2. Add Winterizing Chemicals
  3. Lower Your Pool Water(If neccessary)

    Do you need to lower your pool when winterizing? The answer depends on your pool skimmer protection. If you don't want to use winter pool skimmer cover worring about freezing and cracking,just drain the water below the skimmer. If you want to use skimmer,just remove the hose from the skimmer so that it can drain properly and install the skimmer, so no need to drain the swimming pool.Be sure not to drop the pool’s water level more than 18” from top of pool during winter months. Failure to do so will place undue strain on the cover and void the warranty.

• Debris may be easily hosed off a properly installed cover.

• Removal and subsequent installation is made easier if the cover is fan-folded. 

• Store the cover in the mesh storage bag included. Hang the bag off the floor so the cover can drain.

• Flush out anchor casings with a hose several times a year to prevent sticking. Spray anchor and casing with silicone.

• For solid cover owners: To clean the debris screen, remove cover, open and fold back the mesh panel on top of the cover. Hose the filter screen off from behind to remove fine debris. Close panel and store. • For solid cover owners: Cover must be suspended above the pool’s water level in order to drain. Excessive melting snow and spring rain can raise the pool’s water level too high for cover to drain. If this occurs, simply drain some water from the pool until the cover is suspended above the pool’s water level. Be sure not to drop the pool’s water level more than 18” from the top of pool. Straps and springs may need tightened to achieve proper tension.
