In our last blog, we talked about the first few steps that you will want to take so that you can get your pool up and running so that you can use your stationary swimming harness. Because we want to help you get your pool ready for spring swimming with your HomeSwimmer, we thought that we would give you the next few steps to take so that you can get in the pool sooner. The next few steps are for those of you that decided to winterize your pool.
If you planned for freezing temperatures this winter, you probably disconnected all of the equipment that was plugged in last September. Don’t forget that you need to plug everything back in including the pump, filter and the heater.
You may have also put in winter plugs to keep water from getting in, freezing and expanding the equipment. Now is the time to have these removed and replace them with the drain plugs. Don’t forget to replace them in your filter, booster pump, heater and pool cleaners.
Some people use antifreeze to protect their plumbing over the winter months. If you are one of those people, you will want to make sure that you get that out of the drain lines so it doesn’t cause any damage.
Skimmer and return lines
If you used antifreeze, you will want to make sure all of it has been discharged to waste before you remove any winterizing plugs from the skimmer and return lines. Once this is done you can move on to the next step.
We think that it was good of you to remember to winterize your pool to protect it from damage. Now that you have done all of these steps, you can move on and get your pool up and running again and enjoy some exercise on your stationary swimming harness. Check back again soon to read the final steps to getting your pool ready for summer.
