    What Do I Do Now That My Pool is Closed

    By Scott
    Now that your pool is closed for the winter here is a list of do's and don’ts that will help make spring opening quick and easy. Do pump excessive water off the winter cover. Excessive water on the cover can cause damage to the cover or can cause the cover to fall into the pool. Don't pump off all the water. Leave 1-3 inches of water on the cover to protect the cover from wind damage. Do check the pool water level. Excessive rain can affect the pool level. Draining water from the cover can also drain water from the pool. Don't leave leaves on the cover. Use a deep leaf net to remove leaves from the cover. Don't move sheets of ice. Shifting ice can damage your pool liner. If the pool is properly winterized it will not be damaged from frozen water in the pool. Do check pool chemicals early spring. Maintaining proper chlorine and algaecide levels will help keep your water crystal clear especially in warmer climates.

    SWIMMING POOL LINER CARE

    Most Pool liner problems are due to an improper use of chemicals, too much or too little. For the proper chemical balance, you can purchase a test kit to measure the chemicals in your swimming pool water. PH is the measure of acidity/basicity level in your swimming pool. A proper pH level (7.2 to 7.6) not only increases comfort, but also helps the chlorine clean your swimming pool better, because chlorine needs a certain pH level to kill bacteria and algae.
