Proper pool maintenance during the colder winter months is very important for your pool’s safety. Follow these simple advices to keep your pool in its best condition and prepare it for the pool swimming season.

Make sure that the main parts of your pool are properly stored.  You don’t have to drain your pool if you live in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, or any other town in Hampton Roads, but a pool cover will protect your pool from dirt and debris.

Hampton Roads winters could be quite warm, and most pool companies recommend using the chemicals throughout the winter to prevent algae growth.

Don’t wait until the beginning of pool season to check on the condition of your pool.  Check your pool equipment to make sure that everything is in a good working order and check the supply of the necessary chemicals.

Do some shopping. Most pool supplies stores in Virginia Beach do not get new shipments all year round. Contact your local pool store and ask about the shipment dates to get the latest and greatest toys, supplies, and equipment.

Call a pool services company to schedule a pool opening. Do not wait until the beginning of the pool season to call, you might need to wait a little bit longer for your appointment and miss the first warm days of spring!
