So here are some tips for you to protect your pool and get it ready for winter.

1) Clean the filters – Your pool filters should be cleaned at least once a year. Why? It gets rid of those stubborn oils and debris that are missed during backwashing or hosing. Cleaning these filters will also improve its efficiency! Not sure what to clean it with? Try BioGuard’s Filter Brite.

2) Clean the exposed pool surfaces – those dirty marks and lines that build up over summer (around the water line) are an ideal food source for bacteria and algae. So make sure to remove them! You could try the BioGuard Sueaky Clean surface cleaner to do this.

3) Clean the pool skimmer box – Remove any debris from your pool and the skimmer box.

4) TEST – Have the water in your pool tested to make sure that it is balanced.
