Protect Your Pool from Damage

When winter comes, it’s important to know how freezing temperatures will affect your pool and plumbing. As water freezes, it expands, which can cause damage to your pool’s plumbing and equipment.

Steps to Protect Your Pool

  1. Continue Running Your Pool Pump: Keep the water moving to prevent it from freezing.
  2. Disconnect All Aerators and Slides: Remove these to prevent damage.
  3. Open the Valves of Your Pump: Drain and cover your pipes and pump.
  4. Booster Pump: If your cleaner requires it, you don’t need to run the booster pump constantly.
  5. Heater: You don’t need to worry about your heater running because water in motion is not likely to freeze.

In Case of Extreme Conditions or Power Failure

  1. Turn Off the Clocks or Equipment: Prevents damage during power outages.
  2. Remove the Plug and Adjust the Multiport Valve: Set the valve to backwash.
  3. Open the Air Release on Your Filter: Helps to drain water from the system.
  4. Remove Plugs and Lids from Heaters, Pumps, Filters, and Chlorinators: Prevents damage from expanding water.
  5. Store Plugs in a Bag: To avoid losing them.
  6. When the Weather Warms Up: Replace all plugs and lids before turning the electricity back on.
  7. Check the Water Level: Ensure it is adequate before restarting the system.
