Hello all,
We all are aware that winter is nearing. It is very important to maintain your pool during winters in order to enjoy in your pool during summers. Winter not only freezes the water, but it may freeze the pumps , filters and heaters. Here are some tips to maintain your pool during winter.
Along with this make sure that you open the pool cover a bit earlier before the water gets warm after winter. Algae can grow quicker in warm water. Also before using the pool, make sure that you treat the treat the water before it gets warm. Hope this may help you.

You're absolutely right, cold weather can wreak havoc on your pool if you don't take care of it. Something a lot of pool owners don't think about!

Take the time to do it right. It is always worth it. Frozen pipes will ruin your spring

Hello All,
In the winter season, when you are not using the pool then you should add algaecide in the pool to prevent the growth of the bacteria in it. For the pool safety, you can add the cover in it.
