Winter Pool Care: Covering & Winterizing vs. Leaving Open
We understand that your pool is an investment. There are two ways to protect your investment during the off-season: close your pool or leave your pool open. Consider the pros and cons of each when deciding how to care for your pool this winter.
Covering & Winterizing Your Pool
- Covering and winterizing your pool with a Safety Cover keeps kids, 4-legged friends, debris, and anything else from unexpectedly entering your pool
- No monthly chemical maintenance costs
- Go away on vacation without worrying about pipes/equipment freezing
- Opening to a green pool if you don’t close and open at the right temperature with the right chemicals
- Taking time to uncover and dewinterize your pool or paying someone to do it
