Safety during offseason

Postby kitina » Wed 07 Dec, 2016 22:49

Hi all, safety of your pool is important during the offseason. Even if you are away from the house, your pool may be subjected to climatic and microorganism’s reactions. I got a pool house constructed recently. I didn’t pay much attention initially on the offseason safety of the pool. Then my friend who came for my housewarming referred me a blog which described about the importance of safety and to do list for a pool while during offseason. It tells about installing a security monitoring device, adding enzyme chemicals, algaecide and chlroine for prevention of contamination and also methods to prevent the water from freezing. As a beginner, I found it really helpful.

You can also cover the pool during offseason. An air pillow can be used to protect the pool from snow and ice damage.

Well said Kitina,cleanliness also plays a major role in the maintenance of your pool.During the off-season the pool should be cared more to avoid the growth of micro-organisms.So you must maintain it regularly and also make sure that you cover it during the winter.I thought about sharing a blog which I read recently and I hope that you find it useful.Here is the link to the blog http://www.ferraripools.com/blog/pool-for-winter/how-to-prepare-your-pool-for-winter/ .Have a nice winter.

To keep it safe, you can also install pool fence so that no one can enter that area in freezing cold.

I agree with you Kitina. Safety in pool should be everyone's first concern.

Hello,
Safety during offseason is one of the most important steps for any type of pools. If you are not using your pool then you should cover it. You can also add chemicals in your pools to prevent the germs.

Keeping your chlorine levels up will help you open to a clear algae free pool
