The pool off season is a perfect time to check all of your pool maintenance equipment to make sure that it is in great shape and ready for next season. Check for holes in skimmers, leaf rakes, and pool vacuum bags. Look for cracks or damage to plastic pieces on brushes and handles, vacuum hoses, and etc. Keeping this equipment clean, whole, and in working order will ensure that opening your pool next season will be a breeze! Replace any necessary maintenance tools now to avoid opening day drama in the spring.
Did you know that the best time to buy pool supplies is during the off season? Most suppliers experience a dip in sales once the swimming season has ended, so they hope to keep their business going strong through the winter months by lowering prices. Pool owners can often find everything from basic pool necessities like pool chemicals to upgrades in equipment at significantly lower cost than if they wait until spring or summer to purchase.
Take some time in the next few weeks to make a wish list of pool supplies and equipment upgrades you’ll need for the upcoming season. Then, compare prices online, and you may be surprised to find that you can save a bundle by buying now rather than later.
