The long hot days of summer are over, and soon, fall will transition to winter. That means you probably aren’t using your pool as much as you were earlier in the year, and you might have already winterized it. Does that mean that it is time to part ways with your pool service company until spring? Not necessarily — especially if you choose to keep your pool open for the winter. Year-round pool services are a must for those who enjoy their pools during the winter months, and 360 Pool Services is your go-to company for maintaining beautiful, crystal clear waters and protecting your pool equipment. Check out a few reasons why you should maintain your pool services through the winter months and schedule your next cleaning today!

Benefits of Off-Season Pool Services

Cleanliness

A clean pool is a happy pool, and nothing is more unsightly than out-of-control algae blooms in your pool. Even though cooler temperatures provide an environment that is less conducive for algae growth, many Phoenix pool owners find themselves dealing with this problem during the fall and winter months. During this time of year, fallen leaves and other types of landscaping debris tends to find its way into pools, eventually settling on the bottom or finding their way into the skimmer and pump baskets. These contaminants can cause algae growth and staining if not removed. Rather than having to worry about cleaning the pool yourself, why not allow your regular pool service company to do the dirty work for you? At 360 Pool services, we offer full-service weekly pool cleaning that keeps your pool free of algae and debris

Protection Against Freeze Damage

Although we have fairly mild winters here in the Phoenix area, the occasional hard freeze is not totally unheard of. As you can imagine, below-freezing temperatures and sensitive pool equipment don’t mix, and the last thing you want is to have your pool’s components damaged by freezing water. Proper pool winterization ensures that your pool system is set to weather the cooler temperatures of winter. However, if you don’t winterize your pool and you decide to keep it open during the winter, it is very important to make sure that all the entire system is operating as it should. A reputable pool service company can do this for you in the winter months. Believe us when we say that it is must less expensive to maintain your pool services over the winter than to pay for freeze damage repair.

Energy and Repair Savings

During the summer, it takes a lot of effort to keep your pool clean and the water pristine. Your pool filtration system may operate around 12 hours a day just to keep up with the cleaning needs, and that can translate to a lot of energy being used. Cooler weather and less frequent use during the winter months means that your filtration system doesn’t have to work as hard. Without the help of a professional pool cleaning company, it can be hard to know how far you can dial your system back. As part of winter pool services, your technicians will keep tabs on chemical levels and other essential readings to ensure that your pool is as energy-efficient as possible. In addition to energy savings, maintaining pool services during the winter can reduce repair costs, as your technician can discover and remedy any small issues before they become larger problems that cost more to repair.

Pool Readiness

Sometimes it might seem like winter will never end, especially if it has been a particularly cold and gray one. When the weather finally starts warming up, you and your family will be pretty excited to kick off the swimming season. What most homeowners don’t realize is that spring pool readiness actually begins in the fall and winter. Having a professional prepare your pool for colder weather this time of year, either by winterizing it or monitoring it to adjust the chemical levels and filtration frequency, ensures that it is ready to go when you are in the spring. Imagine the disappointment your family would experience in the spring if you discover major issues that require repair before the pool can be used. You might be ready to dive on in, but if your pool needs repairs, your poolside fun will be delayed.
