Pool Closing Tips

Well, school is in session for pretty much all of the country. The night temperatures are starting to fall below 60 degrees. The cool breezes of fall are getting closer. It’s time to start putting away the summer toys and prepare for the coming winter. Today we share an article from Leslie Pools with tips on closing your swimming pool for the season:

– Start closing the pool a week prior. Use the recommended winterizing chemicals for your pool when the night temperatures begin to dip below 65 degrees. Any earlier and you risk bacterial/algae growth.

– Clean the pool of debris. Vacuum your pool and scrub down the walls to eliminate leaves & other debris. This will save time when it comes to opening the pool next year.

– Adjust your water level. If you’re in an area that freezes, then pull out enough water to fall below the skimmer or tile line. If not, fill the pool to almost overflowing.

– Check the pool chemistry. Make sure the alkalinity & PH is balanced. Check your owner’s manual or talk to your local pool supply store for the proper ranges for your pool.

– Add chlorine & shock the pool. Shock/chlorinate your pool at least a few days before, at the very least the night before you cover the pool.
