Pool Safety Tips During Winter
We don’t forget to layer up and wear our winter jackets when it gets cool outside. However, sometimes we do forget about doing the same for our pools. Whether you want to keep your pool as warm as you are, or you want to make sure it stays clean all winter long, we have a few tips for you!
Balance Pool Water
Makes sure your chlorine levels are correct so that you can properly protect your swimming pool from the freezing temperatures even in Bakersfield. Before you close up your pool for the December and January months, bring your chlorine level up to 10-12ppm. Swimming pool owners need to ensure that their pool’s alkaline, calcium, and chlorine levels remain balanced so your pool doesn’t corrode.
If you are planning on staying out of the pool, here are a few things to do first. Your pump and water heater needs work. Disconnect the filter and pump and drain out any and all excess water accumulation. Even in Bakersfield can pool water freeze, which may cause pipes to burst, which results in costly maintenance jobs. Pool safety is our number one priority along with pool design. Follow our guidelines for a clean and stylish backyard oasis!
