Do you get the feeling that your snow thrower is going to come in handy this winter? I know I do. Those of us who have already had to clear snow this season know that there are many long, cold, and frosty months ahead of us. One of the worst things we can do when we rely so heavily on equipment, like snow throwers, to help us maintain our home and property is to neglect that equipment. In order to take proper care of the snow thrower, it’s important to follow the instructions for regular maintenance that can be found in the owner’s manual. It’s also a good idea to take that extra step of covering the snow thrower with a protective snow thrower cover when it’s not in use. When we take proper care of our equipment, we can be sure that it will take proper care of us — especially when we’re hip deep in that white stuff.
As much as we may not wish to think about it, snow is coming. Maybe not tomorrow; maybe not next week. But, it’s coming, and the worst thing to do is to watch it arrive unprepared. If you park your vehicle at any time of day or night in an uncovered parking area — the driveway, a parking lot, the side of a road — you know the hassle that can arise from having to scrape, scrape, scrape the ice and snow off of your windshield before you are able to safely drive. Scraping is a time consuming, cold, wet, and miserable task, but it doesn’t have to be. One smart and affordable solution is an Auto Windshield Cover that lies on top of your windshield blocking the formation of ice and keeping snow off of the glass. Be sure to choose a windshield cover that attaches with straps to the inside of the vehicle so that it stays securely in place. When you’re ready to drive away, you can quickly and easily remove the cover and any snow or ice that may have accumulated on top of the cover. Windshield Covers can also be used on hot, sunny days to block UV rays and prevent excessively hot interior temperatures. The Auto Windshield Cover is a smart solution for year round use and makes a clever gift idea.
Winter pool covers are used mainly to protect a swimming pool from winter weather and to keep limbs, leaves, dirt, and other debris from falling into the pool. For an in ground pool, a winter cover is held in place with water bags placed around the edge inside sleeves which are attached to the cover. An above ground pool uses the same type of winter cover, but it is held in place by a combination winch and cable assembly that runs through grommets in the cover. Inflatable air pillows rest on the water under the winter cover to make stick and leaf removal easier, and they also help water to run off the cover. Additionally, a winter cover blocks sunlight to inhibit algae growth.
A winter cover is an important part of winterizing your pool, and it makes opening your pool in the spring much easier and less expensive.
