2 Things Every Pool Owner Should Be Doing This Winter

by | Dec 7, 2019 | Pool Maintenance Tips

It’s that time of year again. Snow has fallen, temperatures have dropped, and unless you are crazy, your pool isn’t getting much use. Do you still need to look after your pool? Yes, there is still some winter pool maintenance that must be tended to if you want your pool to last a lifetime. Your backyard centerpiece doesn’t need nearly as much attention during these chilly months, but there are 2 things that every pool owner should be doing this winter.

Maintain a Proper Water Level

If your water level rises in the pool or on top of your winter cover, you must pump the water out. Pump as often as needed and try your best to pump before the winter freeze.

As for the water that remains inside your pool, periodically check that the water is below the tile line. Serious damage to your tile and coping may result if this task is overlooked.

Re-Secure Your Pool Cover

We all know how brutal New England winters can be. That’s why it is important for you to check on your pool cover over the winter months. If your cover is loose, re-secure it right away. If you’d like to hear more tips about proper winter care for your cover, our partner, Meyco Pool Covers has put together some additional tips on this page.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US

Our Work Brings Great Reviews

 

“They build a gorgeous pool. The finished product is exactly what I wanted. I came very close to working with another vendor as I did not think I could afford a quality Gunite pool. I quickly made the switch as SSG worked with me to customize a pool within my price range. Best decision I made and best pool ever! I am very happy with my decision”

 

– Susan L. | Plymouth, PA | Facebook Review

“These folks did a great job building and finishing our pool. We also needed them to move the equipment after adding an outbuilding, which they did on time and on budget and without complaining! The service people are friendly, punctual, and very professional. Overall, an excellent customer experience.”

 

– Frank I. | Saunderstown, RI | Google Review

"The staff at SSG went above and beyond to make this pool happen for us, in the least stressful manner possible, amidst a Pandemic that shut down manufacturers, suppliers, deliveries. They worked outdoors in masks in 90 plus degree weather. They designed and created a beautiful backyard oasis for us. SSG is an exceptional company. They do high quality, gorgeous work, and they stand behind their name. They are a FIVE star company!"

"Couldn’t be happier with the whole service from start to finish. The quality of the work was exceptionally good and you can tell that they approach their work with professionalism and enthusiasm. They pay attention to detail and don’t cut corners. The price for the work was very reasonable and they were always responsive and pleasant to work with. Very happy I went with SSG and will be using them again for any future projects/renovations/openings and closings."

"We worked with SSG Pools for the installation of our gunite pool and deck. We found them wonderful to work with and the pool turned out spectacular. Stunning! It is a wonderful gathering space for our family and friends now. SSG Pools has a wonderful and skilled staff. Through the whole process we were in good hands and the pool they built was the one we dreamed about. I highly recommend this company and also love the lifetime warranty."

 

– Danielle D. | Scituate, MA | Houzz Review

"On time and on budget. I have used South Shore over the last 10+ years on 2 pools I have, one at home the other at my vacation home . They repaired a major problems on one pool that other pool companies had been unable to fixed and they completely rebuilt a second pool starting in April and had the job completed and ready to swim by Memorial day. I also use them for weekly service to make sure things run well. In New England you get 3 months to really enjoy your pool why would trust anyone else."

 

– Paul D. | Weston & Osterville, MA | Houzz Review

"We just had a beautiful gunite pool and deck completed by South Shore Gunite pools and spa last summer. From the very first meeting at our home they understood what we were looking for and made us feel very comfortable with their ability to deliver a beautiful result. Their attention to detail and their ability to connect us with a wonderful landscape architect guided us through the planning and construction phases. Their work crew was well organized, efficient, pleasant and very respectful of our property. It was an amazing process to watch and an amazing result to enjoy. We would be happy to recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality pool company."

 

– Louis Y. | Orleans, MA | Houzz Review

"SSG was wonderful to work with throughout the pool building process. I anticipated being overwhelmed given that I had never had a pool before, but they helped put my mind at ease with their professionalism and responsiveness to all my needs. Rick (sales) Mark (builder) and Karen (Admin) were outstanding!"

 

– Michael E. | Pembroke, MA | Houzz Review

"After interviewing 3 pool companies, we chose South Shore Gunite based on their expertise, their willingness to guide us through the process, and their great communication. We chose a filtration system recommended by them that uses an ozonator. Love our pool. Very happy with every step of the way."
