How to Winterize Your Above Ground Pool

The first step in the weatherization procedure is to make sure your water chemistry is balanced. You should make sure that your pH, Total Alkalinity, and Calcium Hardness are all balanced. By balancing your water chemistry you are protecting the surface of the pool from staining and etching.

Adding a winterizing chemical kit to your water will help keep it blue and clear for the next season. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the kit.

Do not use a floater that contains a strong oxidizer (chlorine or bromine) as the floater will stick against the wall and stain and/or bleach your wall, especially a vinyl liner. For the same reasons DO NOT throw chlorine or bromine tablets into the pool. They will sink to the bottom and damage your pool’s surface.

When water freezes, it expands. This can cause great damage to your pool, pool plumbing, and its filter system. If you are closing up your pool for the winter, you should always take precautions to protect from freeze damage no matter where you live. You can never be sure that it will not drop below freezing, even in the Sun Belt.

The next step is to lower the water below the mouth of your skimmer(s). This will get the water out of the throat of the skimmer which can be easily damaged if water were to freeze there.

Another option for vinyl liner pools is to put an Aquador over the mouth of the skimmer. This is a plastic dam which holds out the water from the skimmer, allowing you to leave the water level up for the winter. This will help in supporting your cover and also help keep the liner from “floating” if the winter is your rainy season.

Blow out the water from your plumbing lines. You can do this using a shop vac. Use the discharge of the shop vac to blow water out of each line from the filter system. As the water is purged from each line, you will need to put a plug in the lines at the pool end. Some fittings will allow for a threaded plug, which is best. Be sure to use a plug with a rubber gasket or “O” ring to make a seal, or the water may fill the line back up. If your fittings are not threaded, then use a rubber freeze plug.

You should cover your pool to keep out the debris. The type of cover you use will depend upon several factors. Our Splash Pool swimming pool covers provide several functions. They can act as a safety device, preventing children and pets from falling into the pool and drowning. They keep dirt and debris out of the pool, particularly in winter. They also reduce evaporation, retain heat, and can provide solar heat gain if using a solar pool cover.

The final step? You must drain all the water from your filter equipment. Please see the filter manual or contact the manufacturer for full instructions on draining the filter or contact your local pool professional.

Vacuuming Your Splash Pool

Summer is here and a Splash Pool is the place to be! Whether you’ve purchased the Splash SuperPool, Omega Pool, Alpha or have one of the older model Legend SplashPools, it’s important to keep your pool sparkling clear and ready for a summer pool bash. Vaccuming your pool isn’t a hard job but it can be tricky. In this article we offer tips and tricks to making the chore of pool cleaning a breeze.

To vacuum your SplashPool, you may either use an automatic cleaner or the traditional manual method. If you choose the manual method, you will need a 1.5″ flexible vacuum hose of adequate length, a vinyl liner vacuum head, and a telescopic pole.

Begin by turning pump and filter off, then place vacuum hose on vacuum head or automatic cleaner. Place vacuum (either auto cleaner or vinyl vacuum head attached to end of telescopic pole) in pool, allowing hose to fill with water. Continue to “feed” hose straight down into water, thus removing air from the hose and replacing it with water. Once you get to the end of the hose, water will come out. Turn pump and filter on and begin vacuuming.

Automatic Vacuuming

With the pump turned off, place the Vacuum Adapter Plate (“N” on SuperPools, “L” on OmegaPools) on top of the Floating Skimmer Weir (“J” on SuperPools, “H” on OmegaPools). Once the pump is turned on, the suction of the pump will hold the plate in place.

Attach vacuum hose into adapter plate hole. Again, pump suction will hold hose in place. Turn on the pump and filter; the pool is now ready to be vacuumed. The automatic vacuum will run on its own. When pool is clean, turn off pump and filter, unplug vacuum hose, remove vacuum, and remove adapter plate. This is a good time to empty
any debris from the Skimmer Basket (“L” on SuperPools, “J” on OmegaPools). Finally, turn pump back on to continue filtering.

WARNING: Do not attempt to remove or install the
vacuum plate while pump and filter are running. The
suction is very powerful;  fingers may get pinched
between the vacuum plate and the skimmer.

DO NOT swim in the pool while vacuum is running.

WARNING: Keep body parts away from vacuum plate  when in place and pump and filter are running.

Installing the Circulation System for Your Splash Pool

1. Wall Fitting Installation — Install the two Wall Fittings (H) at the locations labeled “intake” and “return”. Also install the Skimmer Hold Down Fitting (K) in its marked location. Each of these three fittings has two rubber and one paper gasket. These should be positioned as in the diagram above.No thread sealer or Teflon tape is required.

2. Skimmer Installation — From inside the pool, screw hose from bottom of Skimmer (M) into the Intake Wall Fitting, and hand- tighten. No Teflon tape is required. Note: use soapy water to slide hose onto bottom of skimmer. Next, screw the short hose from the side of the Skimmer into the Skimmer Hold Down Fitting (K). Again, hand-tighten. Screw the Eyeball Fitting (P) into the Return Wall Fitting. *Note that “hose side” is imprinted on the 90 Degree Fitting for your convenience. Now is when the person inside the pool will want to get out.

3. Pump and Filter Installation — Please refer to the directions supplied by the manufacturer of your pump and filter.

NOTE: The 17′ x 29.5′ SuperPool has holes for an optional extra skimmer. If you choose not to use an extra skimmer, use the supplied Wall Fittings and plugs to seal holes.

WARNING: The circulation system produces
very strong suction. NEVER lay on or insert
body parts into the skimmer. Always turn off
pump before working on the skimmer.

4. Tighten Fittings – Make sure all fittings connecting the pump and filter are tight.

5. Tape – Wrap Teflon tape on the threads of the Ball Valve (O) going into the Wall Fitting (H) and screw tightly into the
Intake Wall Fitting.

6. Attach Hoses – (Be sure to use only Teflon tape on all Threaded Fittings. Do not use the Teflon tape, however, on the hose side of the Threaded Fittings. DO NOT USE PIPE SEALANT.) Take one of the hoses and attach one end (H) to the Ball Valve (O) using a Gasket. Take the other end (I) and attach it to the suction side of the pump and filter with a Threaded Nipple and a Gasket. Note that “hose side” is imprinted on the Threaded Nipple for your convenience. Once sealed, hose will not spin. Next, attach one end (I) of the second hose to the Return Wall Fitting (H) with a Gasket. Twist the threaded elbow into the Wall Fitting before attaching the hose. Then take the other end (I) and attach it with a Threaded Nipple and a Gasket to the Filter Canister. It is helpful to twist the Threaded Nipple into the Filter Canister before the hose. DO NOT USE PIPE SEALANT. Make sure all connections are tight.

7. Warning Label – Affix the Warning Label on the pool liner at the Top Rail next to the Floating Skimmer. If the Floating Weir and the internal basket of the Skimmer are removed, the resultant strong suction can trap hair or other body parts if they are inserted into the skimmer. Due to this potential hazard, we are recommending that you affix the Warning Label.

WARNING: NEVER work on pump, filter, or
skimmer while pump is operating or serious
injury could occur due to strong suction.
