Prepare Your Pool for Winter

covered pool heritage

If you’re anything like us, you want to put off closing your pool until the last possible day. But delaying the inevitable can sometimes pose some problems. The whole point of closing your pool in New England is that it’s too cold to function properly. It’s essential to perform these “winterizing” tasks before it’s too late! Plus, no one will want to get in and help you put the cover on. Here at Heritage, we want to help with every stage of pool ownership, from installation to pump repairs.

What Kind of Repairs Are Out There?

Sometimes owning a pool can be overwhelming. There are a lot of moving parts that make sure your investment is safe and clean. It’s a good idea to have each piece looked at before the cold weather hits. Our pool experts have the tools and training to provide a variety of services. These include filter and pump repairs and equipment additions and upgrades. We have seven trained technicians on our staff, so you never have to worry about someone being available to help.

Reasons for Repair

You may be thinking, “But I take such good care of my pool! How could it possibly need repairs?!” Don’t worry – we’re not judging you. Pool filters, pumps, and even liners should be inspected each year to prevent dangerous failures. During the warmer months, equipment can malfunction due to regular wear and tear, and the harsh cold can sometimes do damage if it’s not appropriately winterized.

Winterizing 101

We’ve mentioned the process of preparing your pool for winter a few times here. This process involves a variety of steps, including removing railings and ladders, adding winter protectant chemicals, plugging underground pipes, lowering the pool’s water level, and preparing equipment such as the filter, pump, and heater for winter. If this all seems overwhelming, don’t worry. We’ll help you each step of the way.

The professionals here at Heritage Recreation are dedicated to providing an all-encompassing approach to pools and other outdoor recreation. For more information about pump repairs and other services, visit our site here.
