Pool Closing Chemicals
One of the first steps to
winterizing your pool is preparing the pool water. If water is unbalanced and
untreated before closing, you could be faced with a good deal of clean up and
maintenance work come spring. To help make the pool closing process easy, many
of our pool closing chemicals are sold as all-in-one pool closing chemical kits
that have been pre-measured based on pool size and include step-by-step
instructions to simplify the pool closing process.
Should I Use an Above Ground Pool Cover for
Yes! And for a few important reasons. A winter pool cover for
above ground pools will keep environmental debris out of your pool water. This
includes rain or snow water, dirt, leaves, falling branches, and sunlight
(hint: without sunlight, algae cannot grow!). Winter
covers are also great at blocking sunlight from entering the pool, which can
help prevent water evaporation and algae growth.
How Are Winter Covers
Different from Safety Covers?
While it may seem that
winter covers and pool safety covers
the same, there are some differences between the two options. The primary job
of a winter cover is to keep debris and water out of your pool while it’s
closed for the season. Safety covers keep debris out of your pool as well as
serving as an essential layer of security to keep individuals, pets, and
critters out of the pool. Winter pool covers are a great option for above
ground pools where the risk of accidentally falling into the pool is lower. We
recommend safety pool covers for inground pools to ensure peace of mind and
security while the pool is closed for the winter.
Choosing an Above Ground Pool Cover
Unlike inground pools, which have the option of safety covers or
winter covers, above ground pools only have the option of winter covers. This
means you'll only need to distinguish the size and shape you need your pool
cover to be and the warranty length you'd like to have on it.
For instance, our winter covers for above ground pools have the
strength and durability of covers costing twice as much, and since they are
woven with a strong, durable polyethylene tape, you won't have to worry about
winter weather wreaking havoc on it. You'll find our pool covers in various
sizes and with 8, 12, 15, and 20-year warranties for added peace of mind.
