We must prepare the wintering of the pool before the winter begins. You need to prepare the pool for the lower temperatures. Thus protect your pool from frost and other formations of nature associated with the coldest season of the year, putting into practice all the wintering procedure. Filmography This technique allows numb the pool during the winter months. Filmography With this temporary pool sleep will allow your water to remain healthy and ready for when it comes time to reactivate.
Given that the wintering is a very important process for your pool it is recommended that the first wintering is performed under the supervision of a technician, so as to avoid any problem associated.
How pool maintenance experts recommend 100% to wintering of your pool. One of the biggest advantages is the use of water throughout the winter so you never have to re-fill it all again the next summer. Thus able to save on the water bill and the environment.

It is important to make a previous cleaning, since if there is dirt on the time it closes the pool, the probability of the emergence of bacteria and especially algae, it is very high . Although bacteria and algae do not develop so easily at low temperatures, they will have all winter to do, so better safe.
We recommend cleaning the bottom of the pool with a

Filmography WATER TREATMENT POOL
Make sure that the water is in perfect condition, for this start by performing a shock treatment with chloro Shock
the Ecopool or dichloro CTX
that will attack the organic particles from water prevent the excessive concentration of combined chlorine.
. Allow the product to take effect for about 2 hours with the filtration operation Analyze
pH of the water is balanced and confirm that: between 7.2 and 7.4. If not correct, you can fix it with a broker like pH -
dispoível the CTX
or pH + strong > also dispoível the CTX and ECOPOOL
Filmography REDUCE WATER LEVEL
One of the necessary steps is the pool water level reduction. We recommend that the water level is at the minimum height of the skimmers. With the winter low temperatures, the water in the pool can expand and can damage the plastic and the skimmer to the tiles. Currently, there are skimmers bronze
and < a href ="https://www.iot-pool.com/products/skimmer-inox-500?_pos=1&_sid=8617b6a54&_ss=r" target ="_ blank" rel ="noopener noreferrer"> STEEL < / a> with high quality and more resistant than those plastic skimmers.
Filmography ADD A PRODUCT wintering
There is a very specific product used for wintering process, called Invernador (IVERNET 6M)
. This product acts as a bactericide, preventing the appearance of algae, bacteria and fungi in the pool water. The ideal time to dump this product will be when the pool reaches the temperature of 15 ° C.
You can dose the product in the tank of the pool with the filtration system running, wait an hour with the active filtration system so that the product is effective and well distributed throughout the water.
Note: There may be longer possible incompatibilities between the substances in water and winter treatment to be applied. Likewise, it is important not to ignore the specifics of the country where is located the pool.
It is important to repeat the addition of Invernador the middle of the winter season. If the temperatures are higher than usual at the time of wintering, should increase the chemical doses.
Filmography TIP: It is important not to get chemicals white label or some unknown brand
Filmography DRAIN THE PUMP, FILTER AND PIPES POOL
Before disconnecting the entire hydraulic system is essential to thoroughly clean the pool filter. There are three types of filters: cartridge, sand and Diatomite. Follow the instructions of the corresponding filter to your pool.
You must remove the cartridges so that they are washed with an acid solution. Subsequently, you should brush them thoroughly and review their status. Where it is justified, must do its replacement in order to prevent the occurrence of damage during the summer season.
Some debris like hair, accumulate throughout the summer with daily use. If you do not come out with simple washes it is necessary to eliminate the introduction of a specific chemical. This product will help the good conservation of sand in the following year. may also be a need to replace the
sand filter 4 and 4 years.
To eliminate the diatomite is essential to have an extended wash, repeating several times. Filmography However, it is not only the pump should be turned off during wintering: all extra equipment such as cleaning robots, heating systems, fountains or waterfalls should be turned off during the wintering period. In addition to helping to save on your electric bill, also avoid premature wear of the equipment.
Finally, to prevent dirt from falling into the pool, we recommend using a winter cover. You need to check the pool regularly in order to prevent water from accumulating on top of the roof and make sure that the pool is always properly protected.
If you do not have a cover and do not want to purchase, it is essential to maintain your pool by removing regularly several leaves and waste that are deposited in the pool. This task must be done over the winter, making use of a sheet picking.
The picking leaves
are a very useful accessory for the waste can lead to complete blockage of the pipe suction and filter. This may be due to the decomposition of leaves, insects and other such waste.
Important: Do not let the summer coverage in the water during the winter. The ice or frost may lead to its deterioration.
It is not feasible to hibernate ONLY pool where the intense cold does not extend too long, it will not be the case in European countries. In this case can maintain its filtration operation for 2 to 3 hours per day. In warmer countries such as circulating water does not freeze, you can keep the pool in perfect condition.
HOW wintering POOL SALT
If the water temperature exceeds 15 ° C, you should use the equipment for sufficient time, since the lower the temperature is, the less filtration time will be needed to keep 0.5-1.0 ppm chlorine, keeping the pH between 7.2-7.4, manually or automatically.
Then you should keep the chlorine generating cell in a dry place. If rely on a control equipment and regulating pH / Rx must extract with great care, electrodes (probe) pH and / or Redox put them in a preservation solution in the original packaging or in a in a dry container and protected from climate change. The electrodes of pH and Redox undergo a natural, "aging" depending on the use that give them. The shelf life is 6 months to 2 years.
After this process, you should follow the classical treatment of wintering
Of course, this process becomes time consuming and laborious, but will greatly extend the life of your pool. And like any other job, you can always use the professional services of a company with technical expertise.
