Most people have already closed their pool for the season and protected it with a winter or safety cover. Have you thought of the other things that need protection around your pool? Pool heaters, when not in use, should be covered to be sure that they are not damaged by snow or ice. All floats, rafts, and pool toys should be stored away in a dry environment and left out in the elements. Diving board covers provide protection from staining that can occur from debris that rests on the board. This eliminates the need to remove the board and find a dry, warm place to store it during the winter months. You may also want to consider adding a leaf net over your winter cover to make spring opening a breeze.
