Freezing Weather Tips for Pools

Poolie Team: Feb 23, 2024

Brrr, winter is officially here, and that means it’s time to cozy up indoors with a cup of hot cocoa!

But wait, don’t forget about your beloved pool! At Poolie, we’re here to help you prepare your pool for the freezing temperatures so grab a blanket and read on for some frosty weather tips to keep your pool in tip-top shape!

  1. Pump It Up: Keep the water circulating! Run your pool pump regularly during freezing weather to prevent stagnant water from freezing in the pipes. This helps avoid any potential damage from the expansion of frozen water.
  2. Freeze Protection: Many modern pools come equipped with freeze protection features. Ensure that your pool’s freeze protection settings are properly configured to kick in when the temperatures drop. If you’re unsure how to set this up, don’t hesitate to contact Poolie; we’ve got you covered!
  3. Pool Equipment Drainage: If there’s a power outage during extreme cold snaps, turn off your pool equipment at the main breaker. Afterward, be sure to drain any water from the pool’s main components, like the filter, pumps, and heater. This prevents damage from freezing water expansion.

As the winter chill sets in, Poolie is here to make sure your pool is winter-ready and protected from the frosty woes. From keeping the pool covered to running the pump and setting up freeze protection, we’ve got the know-how to keep your pool in top shape all year round. So, snuggle up, relax, and leave the pool maintenance to us. Get in touch with Poolie today, and we’ll help you breeze through winter like a pro!
