Swimming pool winterization is a bittersweet, final step in pool care when pool season inevitably comes to a close. It's important to take effective measures against algae and other organic compounds that can stagnate your pool, stain your pool walls, harm your pool equipment, and generally make pool opening a nightmare. Imagine finding a lily pond full of creatures in place of your sparkly, sapphire-colored swimming pool!
In addition to algae prevention, pool winterizing kits should also include a metal-elimination product. When metals like copper and iron dissolve in a swimming pool, they can wreak havoc to your pool surfaces and cause serious staining and opportunities for rust.
Phosphates, too, can impose on your pool's aesthetic quality and create “water rings” and stains, so it's important to use enzymes that guard against phosphates when winterizing your swimming pool.
