Winterizing Pools & Spas for an Easy Spring Opening

Winterizing Pools & Spas for an Easy Spring Opening

Author: Alcide Guzman/Thursday, August 1, 2019/Categories: Update Newsletters

With the Winterizing courses at NESPA and the Chapters now wrapping up, one of the key takeaways offered was a Winterization Vehicle Checklist. Vehicle Checklists are highly customizable to fit the particular company, but what is important is to use a checklist each time you ready a vehicle for the road so that you will have everything you need to efficiently close the pool. Here is a checklist from the NESPA program on items to include in the truck.
