FAQ's About Pool Winterization

FAQ's About Pool Winterization


1. Why should I winterize my pool?
Winterizing is the best protection against freeze damage. Having the pool covered and
winterized gives the homeowner peace of mind throughout the winter.

2. When is the best time to winterize my pool?
While there is no definitive temperature or time, a good rule of thumb is when the
water temperature drops below 80 degrees and ideally before the leaves begin to fall.

3. How do I schedule my pool winterization?
Scheduling is easy! Just call our service department at 901-754-7057 ext. 1 or contact us
here. Remember, the schedule fills up fast so be sure to call in advance.

4. What if I don’t winterize my pool?
Keeping pool equipment running helps protect against freeze damage. However, even
with the equipment running, there is no guarantee that freeze damage will not occur.

5. What about my water features?
Even if you keep your pool open, we highly recommend winterizing all water falls,
slides, and any other water features that have plumbing near or above the surface.
Water features are extremely prone to freeze damage.

6. What does pool winterization entail?
With special blowers, we blow the water out of all plumbing lines. We then cap off the
lines once they are filled with air. We also drain water from the pool equipment and
turn off all applicable timers and breakers. Extra pool equipment such as heaters, salt
systems, UV systems, etc. are also drained and winterized per manufacturer’s
recommendations. Winterization chemicals, like algaecide and a stain and scale
preventer, are added and the pool is covered.

7. If Hawaiian Pools winterizes my pool is there any preparation I need to do?
Yes! We ask that you ensure proper chemical balance, double shock the night before,
and raise your water level to the top of the skimmer. If we are putting the cover on, we
also ask that you leave the cover, water bags (if applicable), plugs, and skimmer gizmos
out by the pool.
