It’s the middle of winter right now. If you’re the owner of a swimming pool, this might not be the time of year when you think about it, but nonetheless, pool maintenance is still needed throughout the winter season. One part of pool maintenance to consider includes making sure your pool cover is okay. Today, we’ll go over ways to take care of your pool cover for the remainder of winter.
Patch Any Holes in Your Pool Cover
Check on your pool cover frequently so that you can identify when it develops any holes. If holes start to appear in your cover, you‘ll want to patch those holes early on before they have a chance to get worse. A pool professional can give you advice for the best course of action in this situation.
Make Sure Your Cover Stays Clean
Your pool cover is exposed to the weather all of the time. Naturally, this means that debris will pile on top of it gradually. You should make a habit of taking a soft-bristled pool brush or a leaf blower, and using it to remove any debris from your cover. You don’t want to remove debris with anything too abrasive because you could damage your cover in this way.
Keep Your Pool’s Water Levels Optimal
You don’t want the water level of your pool to be too low. If this happens, the water won’t be able to support your pool cover whenever snow is weighing it down. Preferably, water shouldn’t be able to come into contact with the underside of your cover. This could form a wet spot that would allow debris to pile up.
