Pool Cleaning for the Winter Season in Miami 2021

Pool Cleaning is not over

In many cities across the country the arrival of winter marks the end of the pool season. Closing the pool is one of the recommended options if we are not going to use our pool for a long period of time since pool maintenance and cleaning would be performed differently this time of year.

However, there are cities in South Florida that do not need to close their pools. Cities like Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Miramar, but especially Miami, winter does not stop the use of pools, and as a result, neither does the pool service.

Winter Pool Cleaning in Miami

Winter pool cleaning or maintenance is often handled differently because the temperatures are not the same as they are during the other seasons of the year. Many companies and pool cleaning and care experts will recommend adding antifreeze chemical to your pool to prevent the low temperatures from freezing the pool water.

In Miami and throughout South Florida this is not necessary as the lowest temperature is 17 °C or 63 °F. And the highest does not exceed 24 °C or 75 °F.

This is one of the reasons why Miami is one of the favorite cities at this time of year for tourists.

How Should I Clean my Pool in Winter?

The cleaning of your pool should be done following all the tasks that you have been doing in the previous months. Here is a list of the tasks that we at Urban Pool Services perform in our weekly pool maintenance service:

Chemical Levels in the Winter Season

In order to keep your pool water clean and healthy, cleaning and stabilizing chemicals are used. These chemicals clean your pool water and keep it free of microorganisms that can be harmful to your health and the health of everyone who uses the pool.

During the winter season many pool owners think that because of the lower temperatures and reduced pool usage, they do not need to use the same amount of chemicals that are normally used to balance the pool water. This is totally false due to the fact that weather conditions do not prevent many other external agents from affecting your pool water.

Also, as you have already read in this article, in the cities of South Florida the use of the pool is not reduced in this season, on the contrary it usually increases, which is why the pool service should be done in the same way.
