Your pool needs attention in winter too

With our new Winter Watch Program, we will visit your pool and perform the following:

  • Test and balance your pH, alkalinity and calcium and agitate the water to properly disperse the chemicals
  • Monitor water levels and pump out water as necessary
  • Check the cover pumps and GFCI switches to ensure pump is operational
  • Clean debris off covers and unkink the garden hose
  • Inspect cover security, ie., rubber straps, springs, waterbags and anchors, replace as needed.
  • Visual Inspection of Equipment

During the winter months, nobody likes to venture out in the cold to take care of their pool. However ensuring that your pool is cared for properly during this time is important to minimize the formation of scale and the impact of winter damage caused by freezing and thawing.

Maintaining proper water levels

Keeping water off of your cover as well as below the tile can be a real chore, especially when it’s cold out, but it is a necessary part of winter pool care.  Precipitation, freezing and thawing can all affect your water level over the winter. Failure to be vigilant and maintain proper water level can cause serious damage to your pool. If it is too high, your pool will experience ice damage that can crack tile and lift coping. If it is too low, exposed plaster may crack or cause staining and a dirty appearance. 

Maintaining proper water chemistry

While you may not think so, keeping your water chemically balanced over the winter is critical to protect your investment. If the pH, alkalinity, or calcium levels are too low, it may result in irreversible etching, pitting or staining. If it is too high, scaling will occur.

By signing up for our Winter Watch program, we can help to minimize the potential for these issues to occur. Service is recommended once a month weather permitting, during the winter months but is also available on a single visit one time basis.

**Please note, services will be suspended once water is frozen.
