Gib-San Pool Closing & Winterizing Tips

New Gib-San Water Care Products

The water sample bottle details the
chemical category colour legend.

We are pleased to introduce our new Gib-San brand of water care products for swimming pools and hot tubs. We have always carried the best quality of chemicals and this tradition continues.  This Gib-San Heritage Quality is supported by our fifty years of experience servicing pools and gives us the confidence to put our name on them.

We are committed to giving you Gentler Water and Simplified Water Care! Our skin is our largest organ so it is important that your pool and hot tub water be gentle. Balanced water gentleness requires both high-quality chemicals and proper application.  We will advise you on what water maintenance products are best for your specific pool or hot tub and how to apply them. To simplify the water care process we use different colored flowers on our packages to color-code categories and also use obvious descriptors instead of obscure product names so you know what they do.

As a society, we spend billions on cosmetic skin care chemicals and yet often don’t pay attention to the quality of chemicals for our pool or hot tub water. We immerse ourselves in the pool and hot tub water for extended periods of time. Selecting the Gib-San quality water care program that will achieve gentler water makes good sense for the wellness of you and your family.

Water treatment of your pool or hot tub can be simple. Once a program for your pool or hot tub is established, you just need to follow its weekly regime. Using test strips you can test the water yourself every week, or more frequent in hot, rainy or heavy use times. It is a good idea to have us do a more detailed test once a month or if experiencing a persistent clarity problem.  Register in-store for our FREE Water Test Program and get FREE professional advice too!

RELAX … Let pool cleaners do your dirty work!

Consider the options…

  • Robotic Cleaners are powered via a low-voltage cord that powers a scrubbing sweeping action that directs debris to a self-contained debris canister. This greatly reduces the amount of debris being put through the skimmer/filter system. More information…
  • Suction Cleaners are an alternative …  and an economical one at that.  They vacuum the debris up through a vacuum hose connected to the skimmer return line, taking advantage of the flow of return water to carry leaves and dirt to the pump basket for entrapment of larger pieces and then onto the filter for fine dirt removal. More information…

Things & “Blings” for more pool fun!

  • Relaxation mats & chairs
  • Exercise floats to add interest to your daily routine
  • Memories– Kids of all ages love diving games and toys to create lots of these
  • Things–Water goggles, towels and pretty much anything else for more pool fun.

The right tool does a better job

  • Safety hooks
  • Leaf traps
  • Poles & pole accessories
  • Skimmers & leaf rakes
  • Skimmer replacement baskets
  • Thermometers
  • Vacuum heads … and much more!

Safety Covers – safer & look better

While better safety is the key reason for a safety cover, greatly enhanced backyard appearance runs a close second. With the safety cover stretched taught across the pool, the leaves blow off and there are no more ducks landing in early spring thinking it is the marshlands. The winter safety cover is strong enough to support a child or large dog if they venture onto the pool cover. Plan it now while you are thinking of it for fall delivery.

Solar blankets & Reels

Keep in your pool heat on cool nights with a solar blanket to reduce wind evaporation. A solar reel will make it easier to reel in and out and store the blanket better when not in use.

Pool Equipment & Parts

NOW IS THE TIME TO UPGRADE YOUR EQUIPMENT

We stock replacement equipment for pools and Marquis hot tubs. Whether to fix a problem or to upgrade to new energy-efficient technology, chances are we have the equipment or part – from variable speed pumps to o-rings, skimmer baskets or filters for your pool or hot tub. Let us know what you need.

REPLACE YOUR OLD PUMP AND SAVE!

SAVE up to 90% on your hydro bill with an energy efficient Jandy VS FloPro Variable Speed Pump.

A variable speed pump doesn’t run at one speed all the time like old pool pumps.  It can be programmed to run not only just at the times you need it, but also at just the speeds required.   Not only will this dramatically reduce your power consumption by up to 90% but it will also dramatically reduce the noise from your pump by up to 70%. Your neighbors will love it as well. This pump easily retrofits most other pumps.

Now is the time to invest in this new technology … especially if you live in Toronto or Oakville, as these community hydro companies are offering an incentive to convert.

SAVE up to 90% on your pool pump’s hydro bill!

PLUS … Enjoy the quiet too!
Up to 70% quieter than a single speed pump
Why not start your SAVINGS today!

MANAGER’S MESSAGE

Fall into Winter Hot Tub Season.

As we descend into Fall, most of us will start thinking about closing our swimming pools over the next few months.
 
While Gib-San hopes that you can enjoy your pool for as long as possible, it is always smart to be prepared. You should close your pool prior to a heavy frost to prevent water lines from freezing (generally by mid November latest).
 
Our Gib-San Pool & Hot Tub Centre has everything you need, including; chemicals, parts and accessories to properly close your pool. We recommend that you review all your equipment; covers, water bags, drain plugs, gizzmos, etc. to ensure you have everything you need.
Not sure if your pool water is properly balanced before closing your pool? Stop by our store for complimentary water chemical testing so that we can ensure your pool is chemically balanced before shutting it down for the season.  While at the store, stock up on your chemicals, closing kits and any equipment items you need for a hassle-free pool winterizing.
After you drain your pool to below the return lines, it is critical that you ensure all equipment and water lines are blown free to prevent pipes freezing. Please refer to your equipment manufacturer’s manual for detailed instructions on your specific pool.  Ensure your pool cover is secure with water bags or that your winter cover is installed correctly.  Filters should be cleaned at this time. Any pool equipment should be drained, disconnected, and if located outside should be covered with a tarp.  Best of luck!
