Leslie's Freeze Protection Service

Owning a pool in climates that reach freezing cold temperatures can cause issues for pool and spa owners. This is especially true if they don't have any sort of pool freeze protection. During these temperature drops, water freezes and expands its volume by about 9%. This expansion can cause all kinds of issues for pool equipment and plumbing.

The expansion of freezing water causes intense pressure in pool equipment and plumbing lines. They often crack or break open under the pressure, resulting in costly repairs. Turning your pump and heater on when temperatures drop keeps water from becoming stagnant in equipment and plumbing. In turn, this can reduce, if not eliminate, the chances of freeze damage.

Freeze Protection Units allow pool and spa owners to set a desired temperature where their pump and heater will automatically turn on. Once the climate drops to the specified temperature, the Freeze Protection Unit kicks in. It turns on your pump and heater to keep the water moving, which will help prevent freeze expansion.
