Depending on where you live, winterizing your swimming pool as everyone likes to call it takes on a different meaning. If you are back east or in the midwest most swimming pool owners will need to fully close down their swimming pools but in the Southwest United States that isn’t often the case although we do have nights of freezing temperatures. At Clark County Pool and Lawn we regularly make our customers aware of this to prevent pumps and motors from freezing and we also discuss other things swimming pool owners can do in preparation for the off season. We hope this blog post gives you some insight on things you can do safely this upcoming winter season.
After a long hot summer swim season, the water can have a variety of issues but we want to take care of that for you. When the temperature drops below 90 degrees, it’s relatively safe to start draining your swimming pool if your pool needs structural work or an acid wash. Depending on the age of your liner, acid washes aren’t always recommended but that is something we can make you aware of when we do a site visit. If none of these are your issues but your water is “hard” we want to introduce you to The Puripool Process. It is an alternative to a typical drain and refill. We offer a mobile filtration system that comes to your house and recycles the water instead. Our guarantee is to give you better water than tap and to conserve up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool. Both of these services are recommended during the winter months because they will properly prepare your swimming pool for the upcoming season!
One other way that we properly prepare our swimming pools for the winter season in Las Vegas is installing a Intermatic Freeze Protection with Thermostat. The purpose of the timer is to provide both automation and protection for the equipment against freeze damage. They turn the pump and heater on when the outdoor temperature drops below the temperature set by the user-adjustable thermostat which is usually 38 degrees to prevent them from freezing. All of these services and timers are what we recommend to prepare your swimming pool for the winter months in the Las Vegas area. if you are interested in learning more, contact us today!
