Elite Swimming Pool & Spa Service: Winter Pool Maintenance Tips

A full-spectrum spa and pool company owned by Angelo Rodriguez, Jr., Elite Swimming Pool & Spa Service provides equipment installation, cleaning, leak detection, and repairs. The company takes pride in its high quality of customer service and commitment to client satisfaction.

During the winter months, out-of-use pools and spas frequently fall lower on owners’ priority lists. What many do not realize is that such amenities still require attention. Described below are several important tips for keeping your pool or spa in the best shape after the summer passes.

1. Trim trees and shrubs around the pool area. This can help minimize limbs and branches that fall into the pool and affect drainage.

2. Check and clean out filter baskets more often in the fall and winter. Even if vegetation is properly pruned, leaves and pine straw will inevitably get into the water.

3. In the event of a freeze, wait for any ice to melt before removing it from the cover. Ice shards can slice covers, which can be expensive to replace.

4. Tightly secure your pool cover. A slack cover could blow off or tear high in winds.
