Don’t Drain Your Above Ground Pool for Winter

Do you own an above ground pool? Have you ever heard that you shouldn’t drain your above ground pool before you get ready to close for the winter? Well, it turns out you don’t want to drain your above ground pool for winter. Why?

Let’s talk about the reasons you shouldn’t drain your above ground pool before you close it.

Keep Damage Your Pool

You don’t want to drain your above ground pool because you want to keep it structurally sound.

If you drained, and it sat empty in your backyard, it would fill with dirt and debris. It would also be filled with snow and ice.

Worse yet, it’s very expensive and time-consuming to refill and then chemically balance your pool in the spring if you have to refill the whole thing!

How to Close It

You can find all the instructions for closing your above ground pool on our website.

Use Air Pillows

Air pillows, also found at Ultra Modern, are another must-have accessory for closing your above ground pool!

Before you put your winter cover on, you want to put an air pillow in the center of your pool. Then, when the water freezes and expands, you won’t harm your pool wall, the cover, or the liner.

Your air pillow helps absorb the expansion of the water, keeping your above ground pool safe.

Use Water Bags

Water bags are a cost-effective and easy way to hold down the pool cover on your above ground pool. You can find them at any of our three stores.

Water bags can withstand the cold, and you can trust that they’ll secure your pool cover all winter!
