Winterizing Pool Equipment

Why You Should Winterize Your Pool Equipment

Most swimming pools in Houston have a freeze protection device that automatically activates the equipment as the air temperature approaches between 34 – 40 degrees at the pool equipment. The purpose is to keep the water flowing to avoid potential freeze damage to the pool equipment. The freeze protection device is not effective during power outages or extremely cold temperatures. When the freeze protection device is not operational, the pool equipment must get winterized.

If the pool equipment freeze protection does not activate during near-freezing temperatures, please go to the pool equipment control system and place the Aqualink control system in “service mode”. Then press all buttons associated with pump operations to allow constant “run time” to effectively keep the water moving and avoid potential freeze damage. If at any point, there becomes a mechanical failure or power outage the next step should be to winterize the entire pool equipment system. Please view the helpful videos we have on our website if that situation exists.

The primary objective for winterizing is to remove all the water from the above-ground plumbing and associated mechanical components. Water expands as it freezes causing damage to the plumbing and mechanical components that provide water circulation and sanitization.
