Winter Pool Chemicals
 
Winterizing your pool will help ensure that your pool stays in good condition for years to come. One important step in the pool winterizing process is using the proper winter pool chemicals. 
 
While you will need to take steps to protect your pool and pool equipment from freeze damage caused by expanding water, you will also need winter pool chemicals formulated to protect your pool from damage caused by improper water chemistry. 
 
When your water chemistry is not balanced, the surface of your swimming pool can become stained and etched. At the same time, stubborn algae blooms can grow and take over your swimming pool. Winter pool chemicals prevent algae growth during the winter months, so you can reopen your pool in the swimming season with less cleaning and maintenance.
 
All About Pool Winterizing Kits
 
The easiest way to prepare your in-ground or above ground swimming pool for the winter season is to use an all-in-one pool winterizing kit. Winterizing pool chemical kits contain exactly the right chemicals that will keep your pool water and your pool liner clean. The winter pool chemicals contained in these kits are pre-measured for your pool size and come with step-by-step instructions that will allow you to enjoy a simple, straightforward and successful pool closure.
 
Winter pool chemicals you will commonly find in pool winterizing kits include pool shock and an oxidizer. Chlorine-free pool shock is an excellent winterizing chemical as it will kill bacteria and other contaminants without reducing the effectiveness of other winterizing swimming pool chemicals such as algaecides. Chlorine-free pool shock will not bleach the walls of your swimming pool or damage the pool liner. Non-chlorine oxidizers, these chemicals are typically released through a slow-release chemical floater and remove carbon dioxide from the pool water. Since carbon dioxide is one of algae's primary food sources, non-chlorine oxidizers effectively inhibit algae growth.
 
Other popular winter pool chemicals found in pool winterizing kits include algaecides and stain prevention chemicals. Winterizers are powerful, time-released algaecides that are designed to work over a long period and assist pool shock and oxidizers in the elimination of algae growth. Stain prevention winterizing pool chemicals helps to prevent waterline build up and the occurrence of stains on vinyl liners. They eliminate minerals and metals often found in pool water that cause unsightly and troublesome stains.
 
All top-quality winter pool winterizing kits come with Winter Sorb (or a similar product) designed to keep your swimming pool clean by removing the grease and oils accumulated in the water during the swimming season. With its ability to absorb nearly 40 times its weight in oil and grime, Winter Sorb plays an essential role in cleaning pool water so that you can open your swimming pool with ease the following spring.
 
Once you have purchased a kit that contains the winterizing swimming pool chemicals necessary to close your pool, it's imperative to apply the pool chemicals in the correct order, according to your kit’s instructions.
