Seasonal Care - Autumn & Winter

Do not turn your pool off for Winter.

  • Winterise your pool by adding a Winteriser which will work with chlorine to keep your pool algae free during winter.
  • Reduce the filtration time to 3 - 4 hours daily and turn down chlorinator output gauge.
  • Check the salt level monthly and add as necessary to avoid damage to the salt cell.
  • Test the water and balance pool regularly to avoid corrosion and scale.
  • Check skimmer and pump baskets regularly - keep free from debris to avoid damage to equipment.
  • Now is the time to eliminate any blackspot - see BlackSpot Treatment Sheet.
  • Regularly check your pool as it is easier to treat problems when they start than when they have had a chance to establish.
