Winterizing your inground pool is an important part of keeping it in good condition. To protect your pool from the cold weather, you'll need to cover it with a standard winter pool cover. This cover should be held in place with sandbags, blocks, or water bags, which can be easily moved if enough weight is exerted on the cover. To prevent the cover from collapsing into the pool due to too much weight, you'll need a deck pump to keep the water drained from the top.
Before you start covering your pool, make sure to clean it thoroughly. Remove any debris from the surface and vacuum the bottom of the pool. You should also check for any tears or holes in the cover and repair them before putting it on. Once your pool is clean and ready to be covered, you'll need to attach the cover to the sides of the pool.
Start by laying out the cover on top of the water and securing it with weights around the edges. Make sure that all of the edges are securely fastened so that no water can get underneath. Next, you'll need to attach the cover to the sides of the pool. This can be done with straps or clips that are designed for this purpose.
Make sure that all of the straps or clips are securely fastened so that no water can get underneath. Finally, you'll need to install a deck pump to keep the water drained from the top of the cover. This will help prevent too much weight from building up and collapsing into the pool. By following these steps, you can easily cover your inground pool for winter and protect it from damage caused by cold weather.
With a little bit of preparation and care, you can ensure that your pool is ready for use when spring arrives.
