Before winter hits and you close your pool for the season make sure your water has a good chemical balance.


A correct chemical balance will protect your pool’s surface. To do this you should make sure your pH, total alkalinity and calcium hardness are all balanced.


You might also want to consider adding a winterizing chemical to your water. This can ensure your water will be clear when you open your pool next season.
