HOW TO WINTERIZE OR CLOSE YOUR POOL
If you are a DIY kind of person and don't know how to close your pool, here are the general steps to closing a pool. But note that there are chlorine pools and saltwater pools, each a little different, so these are general guidelines:
Water Bag Cover – If you have a water bag cover you must keep the cover empty to rainwater using a cover pump or siphon. Too much water on the cover will cause partial emptying of the pool due to water displacement. Also, if you have a hole in the cover, as you pump out the cover you may be pumping out the pool at the same time. Dropping the water too low in the pool may cause the liner to float and cause damage.
Safety Pool Cover – If you have a safety cover, check the pool water level periodically, especially after heavy rains. Do not allow water to rise higher than halfway up the skimmer. When it reaches that level, drain back down below the skimmer. Keep your safety cover tight, loose covers will move it gets windy.
TIP #1: Your pool is more likely to get dirty and green when you use a safety cover. A good idea is to pour a good algaecide through it to cover and wash it once or twice during the winter period.
TIP #2: We recommend opening pools with safety covers earlier in the spring before it gets too warm.
TIP: #3: If all this seems to much for you to handle, just pick up the phone right now and call us, that's all! We'll be happy to serve you!
