The winter is often a time where the pool and most of the backyard goes unused due to colder weather outside, making it the ideal time to service the pool and take care of any necessary repairs. In order for your pool to be in the best condition once it begins warming up again, you should look into what kinds of things you can do for maintenance on your own.
Remove the Vacuum and Get it Serviced
If you rely on a pool vacuum, whether automatic or manual, it is important that you remove it from the pool after a final cleaning. There is no reason why the pool should be cleaned regularly with the vacuum if it is not being swam in, making it a good time to remove the vacuum and have it brought to a service center.
Tuning up the vacuum can help extend the lifespan of the vacuum greatly and make a big difference in how well it runs when spring comes around.
Drain the Pool Water and Keep it Empty
Since the pool may not be needed throughout all the winter, it may be best to drain the pool water altogether. Removing all the water will ensure that you do not need to worry about measuring the pool chemicals or cleanliness of the pool when not in use.
Inspect the Pool Pump and Replace if Necessary
The pool pump is responsible for circulating the water throughout the pool, making it important to keep it in the best shape possible. With parts such as the motor, lint trap, and impeller, you need to make sure that every part is in good shape and get any repairs that are deemed necessary.
Replace All the Filters in the Swimming Pool
The filters help trapping hair, lint, and other debris in the swimming pool, so you need to ensure that they are clean at all times. Replacing the filters is easy enough and fairly affordable, making it a smart idea to replace all the filters before spring.
Trim Back Landscaping Around the Pool
Any landscaping around the swimming pool could lead to leaves, branches, and other debris getting in the water. In order for you to keep the pool free of plant debris, address any landscaping that needs to be done nearby.
Swimming pool maintenance is important in every season, but the actual steps involved vary depending on how frequently the pool will be used. With the tips above, you can be confident that the swimming pool is in good condition when not in use.
