If you own a pool, you may become concerned when the weather outside drops under freezing. Now, with the larger level of water it will take consistent temperatures under 32 degrees to freeze the pool. However, you still need to know general care for the custom pool in freezing temperatures.

Inspect the pipes. This is the main source of damage during freezing conditions. At the very least, you can turn the pipes on to a drip. This keeps the water moving and helps prevent stand-still water, which leads to freezing.

Regularly check the structure of the pool. If the water begins to freeze the structure may start to crack.

A pool is a great place to relax, cool off, and enjoy quiet time, especially when it's in your own back yard. However, when is the best time to replace that pool liner? Experts say it's best to schedule the appointment in February, then have the replacement done in April. This is because the warm days help the pool professionals create a vacuum, and the cool nights help create a seal that holds the vacuum in place. If this seal never happens, the liner will come off when the weather grows significantly warmer. It's important to have a warm day, combined with a cool night, to allow the seal to place properly.

Chlorine is a widely used chemical pool cleaning treatment to eliminate bacteria and pathogens. Pool maintenance does not come cheap considering that the average custom pool uses 4-6 chlorine tablets every week. The following tips will lower your chlorine cost:
  • Stabilize It - Chlorine degrades when exposed to UV rays from the sun. Cyanuric acid also known as stabilizer or conditioners prevents this from happening. 
  • Reduce It -  You can use alternate sanitizers such as ionizers and ozonators to reduce the amount of chlorine 
  • Feed It -  You can use either an inline or offline chemical feeder or a floating feeder to slowly dispense chlorine into your pool.

The question of whether to install a salt system in your home pool is a tricky one. The system comes with both pros and cons that must be taken into consideration before making a firm decision. It is quite costly to install the system, yet it affects your pool equipment. On a positive note, the system is very easy to maintain, so you don't have to worry much about pool maintenance. It is also not difficult to switch pool chemicals. A salt system will mean very little chlorine comes into the picture.

Be sure not to cut corners though. You've worked hard and your family deserves a custom-designed pool. You know too many people who've complained about those cheap, unsightly pop-up pools that ultimately go in the trash.

There truly is no investment better than that!
