If you own a fibreglass swimming pool, there are a few tips we can offer for when it comes to maintenance, especially as the seasons start to change.  In this article we are going to offer you some advice on how to winterise your swimming pool.

Although there is minimal maintenance involved when owning a fibreglass pool, as the temperature starts to drop, you are less likely to be using your swimming pool as often.

Should I empty my fiberglass pool in the winter?

Whilst some people decide to empty their pool during the winter, MY POOL DIRECT never recommend doing so.  If your pool is left without water for too long, you stand the risk of the pool floating. We suggest you give the pool a good clean, removing any surface debris.

Should I keep my heat pump running?

If you are not intending on using your swimming pool during winter, there is no need to keep your heat pump running.  Switch it off, and keep the swimming pool covered with a solar heat retention cover until you are ready to enjoy your pool again.  You will also be reducing your monthly electricity bill whilst the heat pump is not in use.

Do I need to switch off the swimming pool filters?

Because you still have water in the swimming pool, you will need to occasionally run the filtration system to keep the pool clean and prevent a build-up of dirt and algae from forming.  Set a timer on your filter so that it runs intermittently.

Can my fiberglass pool handle extreme temperatures in winter?

Yes, your fibreglass pool will be able to withstand any temperature during the year. With the correct maintenance, which is minimal, your swimming pool will work efficiently throughout all seasons.
