Tips for a Cool Blue Pool

There are many ways to keep an outdoor swimming pool pristine clean, year after year. If you look after your swimming pool, it will look after you.

  2. Winterize Your Pool
    Properly winterized pools can easily be reopened when the swimming season begins.
    Whether you should winterize your pool or not, depends on the severity of the weather conditions in your area.

Residual pool water left in Pipes can freeze and cause damage if water is left inside them. Using an air compressor to blow out the pool’s excess water when the swimming season is over.

    If the Water Level drops below the recommended level it could damage the pump, you can use a garden hose to raise it up to safe levels. You will lose water naturally during the swimming season due to splashing and evaporation. It’s also a good idea to check for any leaks if the Water Level seems to be lower than usual.
