Although you won’t be jumping in the deep end any time soon, you still need to show your pool some TLC in the form of winter pool maintenance. Here’s what you need to know.

Check Your Water Chemistry Weekly

To avoid bacteria and algae running rampant in your pool, you must keep your pool’s chemistry levels balanced. If your levels remain unbalanced for an extended amount of time, it can cause more extensive problems in the future. We recommend checking your water chemistry levels weekly and adjusting them to ensure stable levels.

Evaluate Your Pool Equipment

It’s important to check on your pool equipment to ensure dirt, pollen, and other pollutants are not causing a blockage or making them operate inefficiently. As needed, clean your pool equipment to ensure your pool is ready for spring and summer.

Be Mindful of the Weather

In the heart of Georgia winters, the temperatures can plummet below freezing, especially at night. If water is left in your pool equipment, it will freeze and expand, causing serious issues. To avoid necessary repairs or replacements, make sure your equipment has circulation via a freeze guard.

Keep Your Water Levels Accurate

If you choose to keep the water in your pool during winter, it’s important to keep your water levels accurate to ensure your pool equipment continues working as they should. Your water levels depend on how cold your winters are.
