You’ve turned your yard into a vacation spot. Your swimming pool is the envy of the neighborhood. All your friends and neighbors will be clamoring to spend the summer at your house, where they will have a delicious barbeque and a ton of good times. Being the site of positive events comes at a horrible cost, though, in the form of regular upkeep. Anyone who has ever had a pool understands how essential it is to open and close the pool. If you properly open and close your swimming pool, you can reduce the need for costly maintenance and repairs.

Close your swimming pool

It’s important to keep in mind that “winterizing” the pool is the same as “closing” it for the season. This part is more difficult and requires more planning than the opening. The expansion of frozen water puts great pressure on plumbing and other infrastructure. This will occur if you don’t correctly blow them out or drain them. You need to do a few things before closing your swimming pool, such as reassembling the pool pumps and filters to ensure water quality.

The following are some of the most important steps to take before you close your swimming pool:

  • Clean up the pool area of any leaves, stray toys, or debris.
  • Use the instructions that came with your cover to figure out how to get the water level down.
  • You should winterize your lines and equipment.
  • Inspect the pool cover for wear and tear and, if necessary, repair it, and cover everything for the season.

Open your swimming pool

You probably have mixed feelings about finally opening the pool, as do most others. Don’t fear this annual ritual. We open hundreds of pools every spring, and we employ the same equipment and methods every year.

We take the following steps to open your swimming pool for the season:

  • Remove any dirt, leaves, or other debris from the pool cover first.
  • Remove any standing water from the pool cover.
  • Take out the pool cover and machine wash it with care. Put it away once it dries.
  • The correct water level in the pool must be achieved.
  • The filtering procedure must be initiated.
  • For best results, give the filter at least two days to do its thing.

Get exactly what your pool requires by bringing in a water sample and letting us know what’s wrong. As a result, there won’t be any metal stains in the pool water. This way, you can enjoy a refreshing and healthy swim without worrying about imbalances.

Let’s take a look at why it’s a good idea to bring in a professional to close your swimming pool:

Opening the pool is a breeze

Because closing your pool keeps it in sanitary condition, you do not need additional work to get it ready for swimming again.

Keep the pool water clean

The ability to keep the pool water crystal clear throughout the winter is the most obvious benefit of winterizing. After removing debris and properly sanitizing the pool, you can safely cover it again. Having a break from maintaining the pool every day for some time is a nice bonus.

Your loved ones will be less at risk

When closing a pool, it is essential to cover the surface with a cover. If you’ve never seen a pool cover up close, you could mistake it for a tarp. However, most are strong and can support a lot of weight. Thanks to this, your kids or pets will be safer from any potential harm that could come from a fall.

Safe pool equipment

There’s also the possible additional expense of expensive pool equipment. When not using your pool, it’s important to open and close it properly. This will help to prevent frozen pipes and other damage to the pool’s equipment.

A reminder of the essentials for opening and closing your swimming pool

Pool opening

We will remove, clean, and store your pool cover while we replace your pool’s ladders, handrails, and piping. In addition, we’ll conduct some tests to make sure everything is operating as it should. We do not clean, balance, or add chemicals to a pool before opening it to the public. It is the responsibility of the client to open the pool. This typically saves them a lot of time and money. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns about opening and closing your swimming pool.

Pool closing

Our professionals use high-velocity blowers to empty the water from the pool, seal off the pipes, take out the pool filter and pump, remove the ladders, and finally cover your swimming pool. You may also count on us to supply and install all the chemical kits you need for winterizing.

Hire a pool service to open and close your swimming pool for you.
