How To Prepare Your Pool For Fall – 4 Best Ways

With the weather starting to cool off, you might not be spending as much time in the pool anymore.

Before you close up for next Summer, it’s important to go through a cleaning and maintenance checklist for the Fall.

Don’t miss any of these crucial steps…

Best 4 Ways To Prepare Your Pool For Fall

  1. Gather leaves and debris
  2. Clean the filter
  3. Monitor chemical levels
  4. Winterize your pool

Let’s take a look at each of these 4 ways…

Gather leaves and debris

Algae will grow and thrive when you let leaves accumulate in the pool. Any leaves that sink to the bottom of the pool can also stain the flooring material.

Clean your skimmer baskets regularly and use a leaf net to skim the top of the water.

Clean the filter

If you used your pool a lot this Summer, it’s a good idea to clean out the filter.

Plus any falling leaves and debris can clog the filters. Start the new season off right and make sure that filter is as good as new. 

Monitor chemical levels

As the air and water temperatures begin to lower, you won’t need to use as many chemicals in your pool. You should monitor pH and chemical levels as the temperatures cool and adjust as needed.

Winterize your pool

The first big freeze can happen unexpectedly and as an NJ resident, you may want to partially winterize your pool during the Fall, or if winter is approaching quickly, fully winterize your pool.
