You should winterise your pool when the water’s temperature falls below 15 ºC.
Thoroughly clean your pool by scrubbing the walls and running your pool cleaner over it. Clean the filter’s prefilter and the skimmer baskets making sure no leaves or other matter are left in them.
Test the water’s pH and make any necessary adjustments to obtain a pH of between 7.2 and 7.4. pH Minor or pH Plus can be used to regulate the pH.
Perform a chlorine shock treatment using trichloride blocks.
Leave the filter running for at least 4–8 hours so that all the products added become evenly distributed in the water.
On the following day, clean the filter using Extra Descaler. Place 0.5 kg of the product inside the pump’s prefilter or in the skimmer, set the filter valve to the filtration setting and briefly run the filter for just enough time so that the product reaches the inside of the filter in a dissolved state. Then stop the filter and leave the product to act for approximately 1 hour and then perform a thorough backwash.
If you have a liner, fibreglass or polyester pool, add the copper-free Power Winteriser. Do not use regular winterisers as they contain metals that could damage your pool’s surface finish.
If you have a glass mosaic or painted pool, there are two options: on the following day, add the Invernador winteriser or 1 unit of Inverlong. Then place the dispenser in the water cap-side down and leave it to float. It will last for approximately 4 to 6 weeks.
Let the filter run for 4–8 hours so that the product becomes evenly distributed in the water.
In the case of cold climates, drop the water level to below that of the skimmers, empty all pipes and the filter, and place a floating object on the water to act as a buffer against the pressure of ice, unless you use Inverlong.
In warmer climates, regularly run the filters whenever posible.
To prevent your pool from filling up with dirt, it is recommended that you cover your pool with tarpaulin or a pool cover.
