Winterize With Us, Protect Your Stuff

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

The bottom line is that everything comes down to dollars and cents, and we are all holding on to as much of them as possible.  What makes sense is to have your pool and your equipment winterized correctly to insure everything will work in the spring, and you don’t peel off the cover and shriek hoping the swamp thing doesn’t emerge from the dark green depths.  What makes no sense is to find the cheapest garage based “pool guy” to pour some anti freeze down your skimmer, slap the cover on and split  with no guarantee any of your pools equipment has been properly protected.  Chemistry also plays a very important part of winterizing your pool.  Your levels should be different from the summer months, to prevent things like scaling, erosion, and the dreaded algae bloom.  Finally you need to make sure that the water level is low enough all winter long so as not to freeze around face plates and inside skimmer boxes.  These can cause serious damage to your pool that the garage guy will run from…and fast.  Call the Windsor Pool Shop first and avoid all of these problems from the beginning.

Properly winterizing your pool is much more then covering your pump with a plastic bag, (and yes this is done often), dumping petroleum based antifreeze down the lines and throwing the cover on as quick as possible.  Winterizing is just as important as opening, but most often viewed as an out of sight out of mind until spring kind of a job.  The Windsor Pool Shop will winterize your pool so that your equipment is not only protected, but in many cases removed and stored properly on your property.

From the last swim of the summer season to the first dive in when spring arrives, the cover you choose makes all of the difference.  Leaves and debris are not the only unwanted guests that a cover keeps out.  Everything from deer to pets, to children playing, pose a danger when it comes to whats covering your pool.  Safety covers help keep these disasters from happening and the Windsor Pool Shop uses only the best safety covers in the industry to protect your pool, pets, and loved ones.  The Windsor Pool Shop has been installing Merlin Safety Covers for decades and no one can install them better then Chuck, owner and head technician of WPS.  Since their humble beginnings in Trenton N.J. to their great expansion and move to nearby Hamilton, Merlin Industries provides many jobs for the community, and the Windsor Pool Shop will always stand behind that relationship.  The Windsor Pool Shop will never order your safety cover from overseas to save a few bucks.  If it wasn’t measured for your pool, it’s not the safety cover it should be.

Again, I’m sure the question comes up, “What is the difference?”  The answer is simple; 25 years in business with most of the same customers as when we began.  We back our work with our Winter Watch Program wherein once a month we will come out to the pool, make sure the water is at the correct level for mesh covers, make sure your cover pump is working for solid covers, and ensure that all of the lines are still sealed and protected.  We add needed chemicals to keep your water clear during the off season bettering the chances of an easy opening.

“Knowledge is key.”  The Windsor Pool Shop has the know how, the tools, chemicals and parts needed to keep your pool in excellent condition even in the off season.  Your pool is an investment that deserves the best in the business, and The Windsor Pool Shop is the best in the business.
