Spa Closing Service

Expert Spa Closing Service

Some keep their spa open year round if they are enjoying it during cold weathers for relaxation and therapy. However, if you do not visit your Hamptons home during the fall and winter, utilize our spa winterization with D&R’s professional spa closing service. Protect your spa, hot tub, and components from brutal coastal winters.

Things to know

Single Visit

Our spa closing service usually takes one visit to your property. Unless your spa is part of a bigger closing with a pool attached.

Schedule Ahead

It is recommended to close your spa 2 or more weeks prior to your closing date, in case any unforeseen issues occur.

Equipment Storage

D&R offers gunite spa pump storage at no charge securely in our warehouse over the winter. Optionally we can remove, and store your heater tray at an additional charge. Ensure protection against theft, pest damages, and accessories to equipment do not get lost; for a smoother opening process. Portable spa pumps get stored in their cabinets and remain there.

Water & Electric

Until we close your spa, we will still need outdoor water spigot access. We also need ready access to an outdoor power outlet for spa closing equipment.

Locked Access

For storage and ease of access if you will not be home, please provide us with any access keys, codes, or instructions for your specified storage areas. We will need this to retrieve your cover, and store any accessories. We will always leave your property in the condition we found it, and secure any entryways.


If you have never opened or closed your spa, it is not a good idea to attempt it yourself. Parts can break and cause extensive damage, not to mention the danger of electricity also. Please leave it to the professionals at D&R.

The Spa Closing Process

How do we close your spa?
Empty and Drain

Pump all of the water out of the spa and discharge the water safely to a designated location on your property only.

Disconnect Equipment

Disconnect all spa equipment – disconnect all of your spa equipment. The pumps stay stored inside of the cabinet.

For a gunite spa closing, we store your pump in our safe environmentally controlled warehouse to prolong pump life and easy access for opening your spa. *unless you specify otherwise we will store your pump in our warehouse.

Blow Out Lines

Thoroughly blow out your spa pipes, skimmers, returns, and all water features. Heaters, filters, and autofills too. 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.

Wrapping It Up

Cover your spa – whether it’s a tarp cover or safety mesh cover. Tarp covers are used on portable spas tightly secured for even the harshest conditions to prolong your cabinet life. Some clients choose to get custom made spa covers as well.

Hello all,

Never in our lives would we be thinking about writing this message.This is devastating; we hope you haven’t been directly affected. We’re all hysterical that we cannot interact with each other. Kids & grandchildren – it is such a terrible feeling; but we can only play our parts. As much as we hear it every day; it’s time for D&R to address any concerns regarding COVID – 19 Coronavirus concerns and how we are changing operations until further notice. We believe in the safety of all of our clients, staff, and family. We request you make any exceptions to how our service works for the safety of all parties. We will continue to do our best as always promised.

Below is information taken directly off of the CDC’s website:

Q: “Can the COVID-19 virus spread through pools and hot tubs?”
A: There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19. Chlorine easily kills this virus.

We all still need to be vigilant and follow the CDC guidelines pertaining to basic hygiene to prevent the spread of the virus. However, the use of your pool or spa will not increase your chances of contracting it.

Most of our clients have second homes here in the Hamptons. If you choose to seek refuge, to keep your family and loved ones in a safer space; we are offering to open your pools and spas earlier than anticipated, to give you a sense of normalcy and entertainment, while we wait this unfortunate situation out.

Our technicians are all practicing safe and effective hygiene, and always have sanitizers and cleaners for our equipment on hand, as well. We ask that you stay inside from our employees during visits; as we are insisting on safe distancing. Any questions can be called in immediately to our office and will be relayed to our employees immediately. This keeps us all safe for the time being and we appreciate your understanding of the current situation.

Laura is available as always at (516) 449-9107 for any digital communication via text, email, or voice; to address any concerns you have, or to offer any assistance. Thank you for your continued support during these concerning times.

Thank You,

D&R Pool Services, Inc.
