Important Winterization Rules
Although there are many different techniques one can utilize to winterize a pool, it is important that regardless of whatever method you or your pool professional chooses that you include the following few simple rules:
- Never drain your pool below the skimmer opening.
- Never let your pool overflow.
- Remove the pool water from all equipment and all plumbing pipes that are at or above the frost line.
- Do not remove water from a pool cover without simultaneously adding the same amount of water to the pool.
- Never allow exterior water to overflow into your pool.
