Living in a warmer climate in Las Vegas, we don’t typically have to deal with freezing temperatures or snow. That pretty much makes us equipped to not even have the tools or knowledge to deal with it!
With a hard freeze around the corner in Las Vegas there are some VERY simple things you can do to prevent your pool from freezing and causing damage to the pool.
The first thing you need to do is change your timer to circulate your pool around the clock. Even if daytime temperatures are above freezing, your pool can still freeze because the ground and water is still cold.
The next thing you need to do is put your manual solar cover on, run your solar heater (24/7 again so that doesn’t freeze) and/or if you have a gas heater you should run it intermittently (not constantly, just for small amounts of time) just to keep the water warm.
If your pump is not in the sun or gets wind, you may want to cover it with a heavy blanket and secure the heavy blanket.
That’s really about all that you need to do to “winterize” your pool.
Stay warm and if you want to shop for pool homes (while no one else is thinking about it in the cold,) here is a list of our newest pool homes for sale available:
