Shhhh! Don’t tell anyone yet, but before you know it the leaves will be turning different colors and a frost will be in the air, and it will be time to either turn up the heat on your swimming pool, or shut ‘er down for the cold, winter moths.
If you’ve decided to shut your swimming pool down for the cold Utah winter, here’s a few tips to keep in mind:
- It’s likely that your swimming pool was not a cheap investment, and there’s thousands of dollars of plumbing beneath your backyard. Do yourself a favor and hire a professional to winterize your pool- you don’t want to be responsible for blowing out the lines in your own pool and adding antifreeze. No fun.
- You can save money by removing your own hand rails and ladders.
- The main reason behind winterizing your pool is to protect it from damage due to freezing water. It will also keep it nice and clean for the spring.
