The time has come… it’s cold, it is raining, and it is no longer possible to have that first swim of the day! It is time to close down your pool for the winter, or if your clients are going for that ‘Boxing Day dip’ – find out the best way to prepare your swimming pool for the colder months.
It is imperative that if a pool will be unused for a longer period of time, that it has a good clean before the cover is closed. By cleaning the pool before closing down, (and periodically during the winter) it ensures the water in the pool is maintained at a suitable level of cleanliness and removes all the leaves and other elements that may have collected. Using the ‘Big Yellow One’ offers unrivalled cleaning power to ensure your pool is free from nasties that can develop in the pool. The Fairlocks streamlined vacuum-head shape facilitates faster cleaning to the best effect and the centrally mounted 19” brush enables the vac-head to collect even the solid debris that would be left behind by less capable systems.
Covering up your pool is essential to prevent weathering and debris affecting your pool shell. Check the cover, and if there are any cracks, holes or signs of wear, advise the client and suggest replacing the cover. Having a weather-proof cover is probably the most essential tools to weather-proofing the swimming pool. Covrex automatic covers offer a 5-year standard warranty and the systems have an average thermal conductivity of λ= 0.12 W/(m*K).
