Whitby Pool Closing

If you start to feel a chill in the air, your swimming pool is feeling it too! Unlike us pools can’t bundle up to avoid the cold, they are exposed to the elements all year long. Ontario is known for frigid winters and this can mean serious damage to your swim space but local Puddle Pros are here to help! A professional Whitby pool closing protects your water systems throughout the winter months, prevents damage and makes opening in spring even easier. 

Winterizing your pool isn’t as simple as throwing on a pool cover and calling it a day. In fact, taking this approach can result in serious damage not only to the pool itself but to the surrounding areas. Ditch the risk and book a professional closing service with highly trained and experienced pool experts. 

Fall Pool Care: What to Do & When 

Tons of pool owners stick to the idea that you close your pool following the September long weekend and open your pool for the May long weekend. This is great for your social calendar but it might not be right for your swim space. Waiting too long to close your pool for the winter can lead to contaminated water, missing out on the last good swim days of the season and can even lead to damage.The best time to close your pool is when the average outdoor temperature reaches 15 degrees. 

When closing an inground pool it is important to apply a series of winter chemicals to avoid algae growth and help to prevent freezing. It is important to keep water out of internal systems where it can freeze and lead to warping or bursting. A frozen plumbing line can burst without a whole lot of warning. A burst pipe is never good but it is especially detrimental in winter. This will quickly lead to drowned and frozen lawns, water damage, rot and flooded structures nearby. 

Instead of taking a risk, Puddle technicians will drop the water level in an inground pool and winterize drain plugs to prevent pool water from seeping into internal water lines. It is then time to flush return lines and remove detachable components and pool equipment to be dried and stored for the off-season. 

Whether you are dealing with an above ground pool or an inground model, there is nothing that our team of experienced Puddle technicians can’t handle. When closing down for the winter, Puddle Pros apply winterizing chemicals, remove debris, drop water levels to protect internal water systems and will check your pool filter to ensure that everything is in good condition and running smoothly.
