Pentair Pump Maintenance During Winter

Don’t Freeze Up! Keep Your Pentair Pump Purring Through Winter

While you may be dreaming of cozy nights by the fireplace, your trusty Pentair pump is facing a different reality: the icy claws of winter. But fear not, pool pals! With a little TLC and some smart strategies, you can keep your Pentair pump humming happily all season long.

Winter Warrior Prep:

  • Drain Your Veins: Drain the plumbing lines connected to your pump to prevent ice from causing cracks. Remember, frozen water expands, and cracked pipes are a pool owner’s worst nightmare!
  • Plug Power Down: Disconnect the pump from its power source. This might feel obvious, but safety first!
  • Winterize Like a Pro: Consider using Pentair’s FreezeGuard solution. This clever potion circulates through your pump and plumbing, acting like an antifreeze shield against icy threats.

Storage Solutions:

  • Warm Embrace: If possible, store your pump in a protected location, like a garage or shed, where temperatures stay above freezing. This is the gold standard for pump pampering!
  • Cozy Corner: If indoor storage isn’t an option, find a spot outdoors that’s sheltered from wind and snow. Cover the pump with a sturdy tarp or protective winterizing kit to keep Mother Nature at bay.

Springtime Awakening:

  • Inspection is Key: Before firing up your pump in spring, give it a thorough inspection. Look for cracks, leaks, or any signs of winter wear and tear. A little preventative maintenance can save you big headaches down the line.
  • Prime Time: Reprime your pump according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This helps ensure smooth operation and avoids air bubbles causing hiccups.
  • Water On!: Slowly refill your pool and reconnect the plumbing lines to your pump. Turn the power back on and listen for that glorious whirring sound – your pool is back in business!
