pool closing service review

As the exit of the warm weather draws close, swimming pool owners are always left with no choice but to close their pools. Even though the change in season may be satisfying, closing your swimming pool usually brings mixed feelings and uncertainties over when and how to do it.

The way you close your pool goes a long way to determine how much time and effort you’ll spend in opening it when the spring season comes. Thankfully, our team of professionals are here to make sure that your pool is properly closed and your equipment is kept from freezing. 

A safe and secure closing of the pool reduces the chances of unforeseen circumstances when the pool is reopened the next year. When you hand over your pool to the right set of hands, you can be sure that your pool is intact and protected all through winter, and your equipment is kept safe for use at a later time.

Pool Closing Kit

Closing your pools becomes very easy with our winter pool closing kits. These kits are of high quality and contain everything you need to successfully close your pool. They are usually designed for pools with capacities of as much as 25,000 gallons. The chemicals help to prevent the growth of algae during winter so that your pool remains clean and gleaming. 

The chemicals protect your pool through the winter months, when filters and pumps are not in use, making sure that the pool is safe and will be easy to reopen. 

With our pool closing kits, you can take care of chlorinated pools, saltwater pools, as well as pools with pool frog systems. 

National Pool Closing Day

  • The national pool closing day takes place every third Saturday in September.
  • It signifies that it is now time to start thinking about what to do with your pool as winter draws near.


What day should I close my pool?

A lot of public pool owners open their pools from May until September when winter arrives. Private pool owners also follow this routine. Pool technicians are usually busiest around May for openings and September for closings.

What does closing a pool mean?

Closing a pool implies that it is not in use at the moment but may be used very soon. In this case, you’re not bothered with freezing temperatures or if there is water in your pipes or equipment like the pump, heater, filter, and chlorinator. 

Can I keep my pool closed all summer?

If you leave your pool closed all summer, the outcome will be a green, smelly mess and permanent damage or stains to the surfaces of the pool. Your pool liner or plaster can degrade into a very big mess if it is not maintained properly. This will make it burdensome and costly to open again.
