What kind of pool..(in ground)...? Drain all water from hoses & lines.... especially the filter motor........if in ground.......you may have to blow out the under ground lines....and add non-toxic anti-freeze...let a professional do this.....above ground.....lower water level to 2ft.

Most services charge between $250 and $400 to come out and winterize your pool.

what do you mean the pump broke? as froze and busted? If so just winterize the pool and replace it next season unless you use the pool during the winter.

To winterize your inground swimming pool, first backwash the filter, and then disconnect the pump. Purchase winterizing chemicals for the pool water, and be sure to use a pool cover.

That is the correct US spelling of the term "winterize" (make ready for colder weather). The UK spelling is winterise.

Just winterize it as usual. In the spring, drain the sucker and refill it. The conversion isn't worth the hassle.

Sure you can turn off the pool pump, the water won't be circulating anymore but since you are not using the pool it does not matter. Make sure the outside temperature is above freezing until winterizing because non moving water freezes earlier than moving water. Here is my blog on how I handle my pool: http: //live-efficient-green.blogspot.com/2009/07/pool-with-no-harmfull-chemicals.html

Plaster pools are pretty robust, and have virtually no issues freezing for short periods of time. If you are in a climate that stays frozen (for more than a day, like Central Florida) then you want to winterize the pool. A quick Google search should yield good answers as to how.

Run pool filter and pump for 1 hour, to allow chemicals to circulate. Drain the water to skimmer level. Install the pool cover and secure it by tie downs or water bags. Set the pool filter to winter button and if it does not have one keep it to neutral. Open the filter and allow draining out of water and leave the cover open to let moisture evaporate.Plug off and drain the pump, and suck out the remaining water.

Drain the water and put antifreeze in the pipes

User Avatar

My first instinct is to say "Your kidding me rite?". However, I'm curious, why do you fell you need to winterize your AC unit?. My second question is what type of AC unit do you have?

User Avatar

Buy some RV antifreeze (the kind that is safe for pets) and pour enough into the drain to ensure the piping is full back to the main body of water. You may have to mix the antifreeze 50-50 with water.
