Winterization of your Pool

Active Wintering

Consists of letting the pool run at a slow speed. The filtration system works a few hours a day and also takes care of the pool. This winter technique includes the following services:

  • The application of the winter product in the pool.
  • Regular monitoring of pH and water balance.
  • Opening of defoamers
  • Adjustment of the icing box to prevent your pool water from freezing.

Passive Wintering

Is the complete shutdown of all equipment for the entire winter period; in this case, no maintenance is required.

This wintering technology includes the following services:

  • The complete and deep cleaning of the pool.
  • The treatment and lowering of the water level.
  • The complete draining of the pool's filtration system.
  • Addition of anti-algae antifreeze and descaling products.
  • Installation of antifreeze accessories (floats, plugs, etc.)
  • Installation of a winter protection blanket.

So, by getting your pool up and running again and protecting it from the cold, we make sure that your pool can function normally from one season to the next.

When to winterize your pool?

In active or passive mode, it doesn't matter, only one element tells you whether or not to winterize your pool. And that element is the water temperature. To do this, it must be at 15°C or even slightly below for a few days.

If you do this while it is warmer, algae and bacteria could grow in your pool when the filtration system is down or not at all. However, if the water turns green, there is a great risk that you will have to empty your pool in the spring. Therefore, make sure that the water temperature is stabilized below 15° C to start wintering.
