Winterisation: General principles

When the water temperature drops below 14°C, it's time to winterise your pool. By winterising it, you can prevent frost-related issues.

Winterisation is a vital maintenance task. It is important to take care over it. If you do, it'll be very easy to reactivate your pool in spring.

Equipment required: a sufficient quantity of floats, skimmer guards and expansion plugs (if required for the filtration interface type), strap wrenches, tongue-and-groove pliers, pool winterising chemicals.
