With the end of pool season rapidly approaching, it might be time to start thinking about prepping for pool closings. We know, we know… We never thought this day would come either. However, knowing how to close down your pool correctly can make life so much easier when next summer rolls around; so you can enjoy your pool for as long as possible. Even though the next pool season seems a distance away, it will be here faster than you know it!
When it comes time to close your pool, make sure you have the proper chemical balance; preventing the water from producing heavy calcium deposits or producing becoming too corrosive. You should also clean your pool before closing it down. You can do this by scrubbing the pool walls and adding certain chemicals to help keep your water stable; so it doesn’t damage your pool equipment. For the final pool closing step, make sure you drain the pool’s water level to the appropriate level below the skimmer opening. We also highly recommend that you buy a cover for your pool during the off season to keep debris out.
Once you follow these steps, your pool closing process is now complete. We are just as sad as you are about this, but don’t worry, because now you’ll be able to reopen your pool twice as fast as before. Check out this article for more information.
