Damages That Can Occur to Swimming Pools and Their Equipment When Not Winterized Properly

Most swimming pool owners have their pools winterized by now or are in the process of winterizing. I wanted to go over a few costly damages that can occur if your pool is not winterized properly.

If water gets in your skimmer and return lines and it freezes your skimmer and returns can crack, and then they will have to be replaced. Which isn’t as costly with an aboveground swimming pool however it can become quite expensive when dealing with an in ground pool. If you get sheets of ice in your pool do not break the ice up, ice can become quite sharp where it could act like a knife and either rip or puncture your swimming pool liner. Make sure that you disconnect the hoses from the pool to the pump and filter. Also remove the drain plugs. If water sits in the pump and filter and the temperatures freeze it can crack your pump and filter system, which would be another costly expense to replace. Plumbing pipes in hard freeze areas if not properly winterized can burst so always make sure you blow out the lines when winterizing so that there will not be any standing water in them that can freeze.

So by making sure you winterize your pool properly now can make sure you save you time, money and headaches when it is time to open your swimming pool in the spring.

    All of this so true, my first year having a pool I didn’t winterize it properly it was a very expensive mistake. Now I hire someone to winterize and open my pool every year.
