Things to know
The Pool Closing Service Process
Lower Swimming Pool
Most pools get lowered a foot under the skimmers, unless a special circumstance requires the swimming pool to be emptied. Emptying a pool can be dangerous and cause vinyl pools to collapse or gunite pools to partially pop out of the ground due to the Long Island water table.
Disconnect all equipment, heaters, autofills, and water features. We store your pump in our secure environmentally controlled warehouse to prevent accessory loss, longevity, and ease of access for opening your pool. *unless you specify otherwise we will store your pump in our warehouse.
Optionally, we can remove and store your heater tray at an additional charge.
Blow Out Lines
Thoroughly blow out your pool pipes, skimmers, returns, and all water features. Heaters, filters, and autofills too. Afterwards, we add an antifreeze solution to the swimming pool pipes.
Failure to do this properly can cause freezing, resulting in line breakage. They can be in hard to reach areas and become a costly repair. We ensure this won’t happen.
Add the proper winterizing chemicals, and supply the chlorine tab floaters necessary to maintain the chemistry of the water, to ensure a smoother opening in the spring. If your pool has a vinyl liner, we secure the chlorine floaters to prevent color fading on your liner.
We cover your pool whether it’s a mesh safety cover, or traditional water bag cover. We do not recommend putting a full cover over a heater, as it can make it comfortable for pests. Afterwards, we fully inspect the cover and make any recommendations to you for fixes as needed.
