The winterization procedure is to make sure your water is balanced, including the swimming pool PH and total alkaline. Doing all these steps will protect the pool from etching and staining during the colder months. Adding a winterizing chemical to your swimming pool will help you to keep it clear for the next season and it will also help to the water crystal clear. Winterizing is important because it helps you to secure it from damage due to freezing temperature. Although our weather in Southern Nevada doesn’t always hit freezing temps, it’s very important to take precautions just in case.
Here are the steps when it is winter season: Clean the pool This may seem obvious, but we want to clean the pool as much as we can to get it ready for winter. A spotless pool will make it easier to open back up next spring but a pool left dirty will cause more issues later on. Check the filters Check to make sure the filter has been properly cleaned and there are no cracks or broken parts on your filter. See our filter maintenance page or give us a call and let us do it for you. Lower the water level Lower the water level below the skimmer to ensure no water is running through your system when you close it up. Drain the water about four to six inches or until it is below the skimmer level. Be sure to then drain the water out of the system as well so no water can freeze and possibly burst your pipes. Add Winterizing Chemical Winterizing chemical will help keep your pool water healthy and ready to open back up next year. This is an important step in the process and should not be overlooked. Cover your pool It is the best time to use when the winter is coming to prevent the contaminants from falling into your pool and also your pool will be stable and clean when you use the cover pool. If this all seems too complicated or like too much work then give us a call and we can take care of everything for you. We are experts in pool winterizing and will follow all the steps above and make the process simple and easy for you.
As the majority of our customers are provided with regular pool service, they will get the winterization of their pool around late fall, usually when temperatures start to drop. We don't have to do full winterizations like up north, but certain steps should still be taken to make sure no damage occurs to your pool system.
One of the most important reminders is to run the pump constantly when temperatures dip to around freezing. This will prevent the pump from freezing up, which could lead to serious pool pump damage.
Freeze protection equipment is also available and we can help pick the right system and have it installed for you right away. Automatic systems can take the guesswork out the equation and provide complete protection for your swimming pool. These systems have a thermostat which can trigger the pump and heater to kick on.
