As any swimming pool owner in Florida knows, swimming fun does not have to end when the cooler months begin. Especially if your swimming pool is heated year round, living in a warmer climate will grant you the enjoyment of using your Florida swimming pool whenever you would like.
Even with this being the case it is a common yet costly mistake for a Florida pool owner to think there is no need to winterize their pool as the end of the year approaches. In a recent article by Pentair (a leading aquatic systems company), we are reminded of the necessity for even southerners to guard their pools from winter elements, one of which is freezing!
THE #1 ENEMY: FREEZING.
When water freezes, it expands with enormous force. It’s the force that breaks up highways, splits garden hoses, explodes beverage cans in your freezer, and it’s the force that expands and cracks pool pipes, filters, pumps and skimmer baskets. If you are closing up your pool for the winter, you should always take precautions to protect from freeze damage no matter where you live—even pool owners in the South have learned, to their regret, that freezing temperatures are an ever-present risk.
