Newmarket Pool Closing

No one wants to admit that summer is coming to an end but when temperatures begin to cool it is an unfortunate reality. You can throw on an extra sweater or scarf but your swimming pool is left out in the cold — literally! Cold weather might be a pain for us but it is a serious danger to pools and their internal water systems. Improper closures can have serious consequences so call Puddle for your Newmarket pool closing services. 

When you want to winterize your pool it isn’t as simple as throwing on a pool cover and walking away. During the off-season the primary threat to swimming pools is freezing. Sub-zero temperatures make plastic brittle and cause water to freeze. Frozen water expands up to 9% which might not seem like much but it is enough to cause pipes to burst. Protect your pool from the winter weather by calling a local Puddle Pro. 

Fall Pool Care: Avoiding a Worst-Case Scenario 

Many pool owners choose to shut down water systems following the September long weekend but this might not be the ideal time to close. Closing down too early can mean missing out on the last warm days of summer while waiting too long can mean dealing with damage. Instead of focusing on an exact date, the best time to close your pool is when the average outdoor temperature reaches 15 degrees. 

In order to keep your inground pool running smoothly all year long , it is important to protect it from the cold and that means taking a multi-step approach when closing. Puddle technicians have spent years perfecting their pool closing techniques and it all starts with dropping the water level. Pools should always be cleaned before a closing in order to avoid unnecessary contaminants and then the fun can begin! 

It is important to drop the pool water level so it falls a couple of inches below the skimmer line. This, combined with winterizing plugs prevents water from seeping into sensitive areas where it can freeze and cause damage. If small amounts of water are left to sit inside return lines or in plumbing lines, it will freeze over quickly and cause breakage. Flushing lines prevents sitting water. 

Once water levels are dropped and internal systems are secured it is time for an application of specially developed winter pool chemicals. This treatment not only prevents freezing, it goes a long way in preventing algae growth as well. Protecting internal components and equipment should always be a top priority and this is best done by removing detachable components so they can be dried and stored for the winter. It is also a good idea to assess the condition of your filtration system. 

A proper pool closing not only protects your swim space throughout the off-season, it makes future pool openings easier as well. Instead of pulling back a pool cover to discover a swamp, have an experienced technician shut down your system properly.
