Winterizing Your Pool

The #1 enemy: freezing.

When water freezes, it expands with enormous force. It’s the force that breaks up highways, splits garden hoses, explodes beverage cans in your freezer, and it’s the force that expands and cracks pool pipes, filters, pumps and skimmer baskets. If you are closing up your pool for the winter, you should always take precautions to protect from freeze damage no matter where you live—even pool owners in the South have learned, to their regret, that freezing temperatures are an ever-present risk.

  1. Be good to your pump and heater.
  2. No water in the pipes = no freeze damage.
  3. Clean the filter.
  4. Your final freeze insurance: the flotation device.
  5. The winter cover.
  6. Time for storage.
  7. Remove rope and floats from pool and put with the rest of the supplies. Store any dive board and ladders in the shed or garage, with your pump and filter. Store your dive bolts or ladder bumpers in the pump basket. If you have a sand filter, just leave it outside.

  8. You’re done.
  9. Your pool is ready for winter’s worst. Your investment is protected. And your spring pool opening should be an easy step to another season of swimming enjoyment!
