TYPICAL FREEZE CONDITIONS IN OUR AREA:
During FREEZE conditions, your pumps should continuously run to keep water circulating to help prevent freezing. Typical control systems will have a freeze protect sensor that kicks on pumps when temperatures drop. If this does not work or you do not have this feature, manually turn on pumps to run.
If you have a SPA, the pool should switch back and forth between running the pool and spa to keep circulation going.
If you have WATER FEATURES, these should be flowing as well unless you have professionally winterized them and they are isolated to a pump other than your main pump.
Maintain the proper water level.
Disconnect fill lines from external faucets and insulate.
Drain and remove Ledge Loungers or similar pool furniture.
Your equipment set up is unique and may have other features that need attention that is not mentioned here.
EXTREME CONDITIONS IN OUR AREA:
If a loss of power during a freeze is a risk or there is a long stretch of a hard freeze to occur, you should take extra steps.
