18 Pool Closing Tips From Industry Professionals

From Swim University

The nights get chillier, the sky gets dark earlier, and the kids are back in the school groove.  It’s fall, and its time to get the swimming pool closed up for the Winter.  Luckily, Matt Giovanisci from Swim University has a list of tips for pool closings from Industry Professionals around the country.  For those that either want to do it themselves, or for those that want to make sure they understand what a professional pool closing company or pool service company is doing for the money, this list is the perfect guide.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

1. Do NOT Close Your Pool Too Early

Mid to late summer is the best time to close it…even early October if the pool is heated. Water needs to be consistently below 65 degrees to avoid algae growth and other problems.

Closing prematurely will only lead to more work and expense at pool opening in Spring. Enjoy your personal paradise as long as you can!

2. Everything Has a Place, Everything in its Place

Place all the plugs in the skimmer basket during your pool winterization maintenance. By doing this, you’ll know where they are when you need them next spring.

3. Don’t Shock and Add Algaecide on the Same Day

Algaecides will be destroyed by such high chlorine. Instead, shock the pool 4-7 days prior to closing the pool, then add algaecide before you cover the pool.
