Have You Winterized Your North Georgia Inground Swimming Pool Yet?
North Georgia weather is forecast to be wet and chilly this 2015-2016 winter season according to the Farmer’s Almanac. If you have not made preparations to close your pool for the winter, then now is a great time to do it before the first official Fall Frost on November 15th, 2015 as predicted by The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
If you’d like to learn more about the actual process of Winterizing your inground swimming pool then check out our past article called Winterizing. A brief synopsis of what it means to Winterize your inground pool is to treat and clean it really well, lower the water level a little bit, get water out of the drains and pipes so it does not freeze or crack, then cover the pool.
You can choose between a mesh cover or solid cover, our past article goes more into depth on solid or mesh safety winter covers. There are pro’s and con’s to both. If you decide to go with a solid cover then you’ll need a submersible pump to get excess water that accumulates. A mesh cover is nice because the water passes through. A mesh cover is also lower maintenance during the off-season for this reason.
If all this is to daunting for your busy schedule, please call us to schedule your pool closing this Winter.
Bonus Tip to Winterizing your North Georgia Inground Swimming Pool: Check the tree’s around your home and pool, with the extra rainy season coming our way this year, the ground will be wetter, softer and dead and/or weak tree’s will come down. Make sure any overhanging branches are trimmed back and not susceptible to falling onto your swimming pool safety cover or roof. It can do major damage!
