Do Robots Hibernate? Solar-Breeze Winter Care

//Do Robots Hibernate? Solar-Breeze Winter Care

PictureFall is here in the northern hemisphere! All around the world, nature’s landscape colors are changing, leaves are falling, and many pools are closing. Here are some tips for Solar-Breeze winter care.

If you don’t live in a warm climate or don’t have a pool heater, maybe you are closing your pool and setting your Solar-Breeze aside for the winter.

Since there are no cords, hoses or attachments with the Solar-Breeze, removing the system for the winter is as easy as turning it off, lifting it out of the pool, draining any excess water, cleaning and drying it.

Storing the Solar-Breeze outdoors is not recommended. If you were to store your Solar-Breeze outdoors, it would be subject to cold temperature that could damage the internal rechargeable Lithium Ion battery. The robot’s battery should last two years if the Solar-Breeze is used daily and longer if the unit is used only seasonally.

The first step to Solar-Breeze winter care is to make sure to clean it thoroughly. Remove all traces of chlorine and set it in the sun with the switch off and let it come to a full charge. It’s not a bad idea to put a piece of masking tape on the switch to make sure it doesn’t come on during the winter. Lastly, place it back in its box or somewhere inside to be stored. Never store chlorine inside your home.

For those of you living in an area of the world that doesn’t experience harsh winters, maybe you don’t have to worry about winterizing your pool. If you are able to keep your pool open during the fall and winter months but don’t necessarily keep swimming in it, be mindful that just because you’re not swimming in it, doesn’t mean it’s not getting dirty!  Continuing to run your Solar-Breeze will keep it sparkling clean.
