Check the pool supplies

Inspect expiration dates on all swimming pool chemical containers. Properly dispose off expired cleaning supplies and replace with new chemicals. Don’t forget that if a chemical wasn’t correctly sealed before storing in the off-season, you should replace that too.

Clean the filter

When you store the filter for the off-season, make sure you clean any chemical residue and dirt. By doing this, it will not only save you time cleaning it in the spring, but you’ll also prolong the component’s life span. Cleaning the filter will minimize its exposure to salt, chlorine, and other destructive chemicals.

Removing the pool cover

You pool cover collects water during the fall and winter season. Make sure the water on top of the cover doesn’t mix with your pool water. It is important that you use a vacuum or pump to get rid of the water from the top of your pool cover. Then take the cover to your front yard or on a slope or slant area for much easier drainage. You should thoroughly sweep and hose off the pool cover.  Also, use treatment or cleaner if it is advised by the manufacturer of the pool cover.

The level of pool water

You should fill your pool’s water level back to its usual level by using a garden horse. This is often halfway up the tile or around the middle of the skimmer opening. This is essential as you want the pool pump to draw pool water, not air, as soon as you turn it back on.
