7 Swimming Pool Winter Maintenance Tips

Here are the top 7 tips to keep your pool in tip-top shape straight through the winter months.

  • Tip #1 – Cover your pool and modify your chlorination settings to not over chlorinate.
  • Tip #2 – Fortnightly check your chlorine and pH levels.
  • Tip #3 – Occasionally check your skimmer basket and empty as required.
  • Tip #4 – Don’t forget to check if the water level of your pool is halfway up your skimmer box opening.
  • Tip #5 – Occasionally check your filter pressure gauge to see if your filter needs a clean or backwash.
  • Tip #6 – To prevent moisture build-up in your light, turn your pool lights on once a week for at least 30 minutes.
  • Tip #7 – And the most important tip, LEAVE your Kreepy Krauly pool cleaner plugged in and ready for daily service. To prevent staining, maintain circulation and proper filtration. 

Most people don’t know that your Kreepy Krauly is designed to stay in the pool working away so you don’t have to. He will keep ticking along cleaning your pool underneath your pool blanket everyday, working with your filtration system to properly filter your pool. This will ensure naughty leaves that slip through your pool blanket will be whisked away to prevent staining and ideal circulation will be maintained without the need to get your hands cold. An added bonus is there will be no lifting and bending of a robot through winter and summer with a truly automatic solution, just set and forget!
