Winterizing the pool is a process that involves preparing the pool and equipment for winter, as well as covering it. Keeping debris out of the pool in the off-season will make it easier to clean up when opening the pool for the next season. It is important to cover the pool in winter.
There are two types of winter pool covers available at Pool Enclosures Pool Covers: 1) A solid vinyl cover or 2) a mesh cover. There are many types of solid vinyl covers available, with different thicknesses and warranties. Most mesh covers come in one quality.
