It might be cold...but your pool still needs you!!
Getting your pool ready for winter is really much the same as every other season. In our temperate climate there is no need to "winterise" your pool.
It's important to follow a regular maintenance program all year round.You will need to complete regular weekly testing of chlorine & pH at home using your pool test kit and then every month take a water sample to your local pool shop or arrange for a pool service company to complete the full water test onsite this will ensure you take care of your pool, a very special asset!
During winter, as you check your levels each week, you will most likely notice that you will need to dial the chlorinator output down, as evaporation and chemical loss will be much less during this time, your chlorinator won't need to produce at a high level like in summer.If you keep an eye on your chemicals, you will stop any over chlorination of the water, which can damage your equipment, shell surface and void warranties.
Pool Heating - If you are constantly heating your pool right through winter you may not need to reduce your chlorine levels, use your test kit to determine and regulate each week.Pool Covers - If you plan to cover your pool with a solar cover over the winter period, this will almost stop evaporation and you will most likely need a minimum chlorine output, remember you will still need to check under the cover occasionally to clean and brush your pool surface.
