Niagara Falls Pool Closing

When winter weather rolls around it is a serious risk to swim spaces throughout the Niagara area. While you are layering your clothes and bundling up indoors with a cup of hot cocoa your swimming pool is left out in the cold — literally! Cold temperatures can cause serious damage to your water systems and surrounding areas so it is always better to book seasonal pool care in advance to protect your pool from the fall/winter season. Proper Niagara Falls pool closing services protect pools from freezing and helps to pave the way for an easier opening in spring.

It is easy to let fall pool care slip your mind but as soon as the average outdoor temperature reaches 15 degrees, your water system is at risk and should be closed down to avoid damage and the costly repairs that come along with them. 

Fall Pool Care: What to Expect When Closing 

Getting your swim space ready for fall isn’t as simple as throwing on a winter cover and hoping for the best. Cold temperatures make plastic brittle and can cause water to freeze over. It would take a long while of constant exposure to sub-zero temperatures for an entire pool to freeze over but it doesn’t take much for the small amounts of water inside return lines to go solid. When frozen, water will expand by up to 9% which might not seem like much but it is enough to cause pipes to burst. 

The best way to avoid unnecessary damage is by being proactive. In order to prevent freezing inside lines and internal water systems our team of Puddle technicians will drop the water level in your pool so it falls a few inches below the skimmer line. When combined with winterizing plugs this step prevents water from seeping into vulnerable areas where it might freeze and cause breakage. 

In addition to dropping the water lines it is important to apply a series of winter chemicals designed to reduce the risk of freezing as well as algae growth. An improper closing doesn’t just effect your swim space during the fall, it will have a negative impact on openings as well. Without the application of winter chemicals, it is common for pool owners to pull back covers in May only to find a swamp instead of an inviting swim space. This not only looks awful, it means taking more time to restore water condition which means missing out on the first warm days of summer. 

When you want to close your pool properly and protect it during the off-season, trust your local Puddle Pro for reliable, affordable and efficient seasonal pool care in the Niagara Falls area.
