Winter Care Warnings
It is very important that your pool cover remains dry and the water level in the pool full at ALL times to avoid damaging the cover and/or pool. It is the water in your in-ground pool that keeps the structure of the pool safe from hydrostatic groundwater pressure and also supports the cover fabric of your automatic pool cover keeping your pool cover safe. To ensure that your pool stays full of water you will need to make sure that your pool cover pump is placed out on the cover for the entire winter season and periodically monitor the water level in your pool.
Keep Your Cover Dry
Keeping your pool cover dry in the winter is the best way to ensure that your pool will remain full of water:
Leaves can clog up the vents on the underside of the cover pump and prevent the pump from working correctly or at all, which will allow water to accumulate on top of the pool and form a shallow water pool on top of the cover. It is very important that you do not allow a shallow water pool to form on top of your pool cover. A shallow water pool not only creates a drowning risk to small children and animals, but can also cause water displacement from your swimming pool and damage the pool and the cover!
Your pool cover will freeze in the tracks and will not open once we have had a few nights of temperatures below 32 degrees
