Point Edward Pool Closing

When warm weather starts to give way to frosty mornings it is time to start weatherproofing — and this doesn’t just mean your wardrobe. As much as you might layer up to keep warm, your swimming pool is left out in the cold, literally! Instead of catching a chill when a pool is exposed to cold weather it can lead to serious damage. Puddle provides Point Edward pool closing services that protect swim spaces from the cold, avoids damage and makes opening easier in spring. 

Fall Pool Care: The Best Way to Close Your Pool 

Many pool owners choose to close their systems down following the September long weekend but this isn’t always the ideal time. Closing too early can mean missing out on the last good swim days of summer while waiting too long can cause damage to pools themselves and surrounding areas. The best time to close your pool isn’t an exact date, it is a temperature. As soon as the average outdoor temperature reaches 15 degrees, it is time to shut your pool down for the season. 

There is a big difference in treating an above ground pool and an inground model but each of these need attention in order to avoid serious headaches. Applying winter chemicals helps to avoid freezing and prevent algae growth but the process doesn’t stop there. Above ground pools benefit from the installation of water bags that are designed to prevent freezing while inground pools are a bit more demanding. 

The major risk to any pool and water system is freezing. As bad as algae and bacteria might be, frozen water can cause widespread damage to swim spaces and surrounding areas. The best way to winterize your pool is to drop water levels and winterize drain plugs. These steps prevent water from seeping into vulnerable areas where it can freeze and cause damage. If you want to drain the water from your pool so it falls a few inches below the skimmer line, it is always best to leave the heavy lifting to an expert. 

After dropping water levels it is time to blow out return lines and ensure that there is no water left sitting inside plumbing lines. Cold temperatures make plastic brittle and frozen water expands and causes pipes to burst. Once pools have been cleaned and winterized it is time for careful application of winter pool chemicals to reduce the risk of freezing and algae growth. 

If your pool equipment begins to fail it will have a ripple effect throughout your swim space. No one wants to start the pool season with expensive repairs and replacements. When the fall season comes around it is a good idea to inspect the pool pump and pool filters to make sure that everything is in good shape. Any detachable components should be removed, dried and stored for the winter. It can be tough to assess the condition of sand filters or cartridge filters without technical training but our Puddle Pros are highly trained and experienced so you can rest easy. 

For excellent results, peace of mind and affordable rates, don’t hesitate to call a Puddle Pro for your seasonal care and closings.
