Your pool stands as a beacon to what summer will be once the weather warms up again when you glance into your backyard! When the snow falls, we are dreaming of sunny days full of swimming and not worrying about pool maintenance. But you should keep an eye on your inground pool and help protect it from any snow damage this winter with these tips and tricks.
Your pool cover is the line between your water and the weather and winter elements throughout the winter. It needs to be properly in place before too much snow starts falling or building up on the ground. If you are worried at all about your pool cover, contact our professional technicians to check it out before the winter rolls on too much. Among our services at Caribbean Pools & Spas regarding your pool’s cover include diagnosing and servicing any problems. We will perform a tune-up, cleaning, general maintenance, replace your auto cover’s rope and install a whole new cover if needed.
If you are certain that your cover is good to go, you still need to watch it throughout the colder months. If you notice an excessive amount of debris or snow building up, then you should take care of removing it when possible. What you use to remove debris is way different than your tools for your lawn or driveway! A rake or snow shovel has sharp edges and corners that could create issues by tearing up your pool’s liner. We recommend using a long broom to carefully brush off what you can from your pool cover.
Your water level will not be the same during the winter as it is during the swimming season. You need to drain some of your water out to help prevent freezing damage and issues. General guidelines can help you with how much water needs to be drained and remain out of your pool all winter long as the water is what helps hold up your pool’s cover. If you have a vinyl liner, typically your water should be done an inch, a plaster or non-vinyl liner calls for six inches if you have a solid cover or 18 to 20 if you have a mess cover. An automatic pool cover calls for your water to be below your skimmer.
Your inground pool investment is not at risk when you have trained experts by your side every step of the way! Our Caribbean crew members are here for you throughout the year and across all of the seasons to offer all of our services from maintenance and repairs to renovations and water chemical testing.

Great customer service and staff was extremely helpful!
I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Caribbean. Their communication, attention to detail, and respectful staff is just a few of the reasons they have been in business for so long. It is refreshing to find a business that follows through with their promises and goes above and beyond. Special shout outs to John, Heather, and Chad,…
Purchased a home 2 years ago with a pool and struggled with the people show installed it for service. Called Caribbean this year for opening /closing. Arrived exactly on time took 20 minutes and the technicians were oustanding. Highlly reccomned.
Great store with everything you need for your pool. Also for your patio with their selection of the Green Egg Grills and accessories they can't be beat. Staff is always helpful, and they stock almost any part that you need for your in-ground pool.
We made the great choice to use Caribbean Pools. They are professional, knowledgeable and responsive! They really stand by their product and installation. We've been really impressed with the company. I don't usually write reviews but they are an exceptional team and I wanted others to know that we have found them to be trustworthy!
