The winter season means the pools are closed. However, before you close down your pool, you need to make sure it’s closed properly. Norfolk Pool Services offer a winterization service to keep your pool properly closed for the season.
If you don’t have anyone to help you with that, we can do it for you.
How to Close Down a Pool for Winter
You should start closing down your pool when the temperature drops below 55°F. The water must be drained out of the pool before pouring special chemicals into it.
Then refill the pool and drain all water again after 48 hours by opening all valves if possible or by using a submersible pump. This is repeated until there are no more bubbles coming from your skimmer or filter equipment which indicates air released from the lines is completely clear.
During this process ensure that no one goes into or uses the pool since chlorine levels would be very high.
When your pool is completely dry, it can be covered to avoid debris or leaves falling in. If there are any cracks or damage, the cover must be repaired prior to starting using the pool again in spring.
Importance of Winterization
Pool winterization is a very important process that should not be taken lightly. If it’s done incorrectly, it can cause damage to your pool and equipment. It’s also very dangerous to swim in a pool that hasn’t been treated properly.
A poorly closed pool might have green algae growth, which can be harmful to humans and animals. The chemicals used for winterization keep the water clean and safe during the months when it is not in use. Once you refill your pool in spring, you will need to shock it with super-chlorinated water before opening valves or removing the cover since contaminants could get into your pipes and filter system while you weren’t using it.
