How to Winterize Your Pristine Blue Pool

Posted by Kelly Mackereth on

Pristine Blue makes winterizing your pool easy! Follow these steps to winterize. 
A single treatment of PristineBlue at the end of the swim season is normally all it takes to keep a pool clear until spring.
“Winterizing” or “Closing” a pool means adding products at the end of the swim season to keep it clear without maintenance during the cold winter months.
Step 1: Balance
1a. Balance water parameters to within proper ranges below.
  • Total Alkalinity: 50 to 90 ppm
  • pH: 7.2 to 7.6
  • Calcium Hardness: 100 to 400 ppm
Step 2: Prep
2a. Shock the pool with 1 pound of PristineExtra per 10,000 gallons of water.
2b. Run the filter for 4 hours.
2c. Clean pool and backwash sand filters. Thoroughly clean D.E. or cartridge filters.
2d. Add 2 ounces of PristineClean per 10,000 gallons of water.
Step 3: Close with PristineBlue
3a. Test the PristineBlue level and add PristineBlue using the Maintenance Dosage Chart below.
3b. Follow the pool and equipment manufacturer’s freeze recommendations.
3c. Cover the pool and shut down the filter.

  • Great! I followed these instructions to a T last year and my pool looked amazing when I opened it in the spring. I plan on doing it again this year! Wahoo!
