Autumn is here, which means it time to think about closing your pool, but it doesn’t have to be a frightening process! There are 3 things to consider when closing your pool to keep you from facing scary circumstances once it’s time to open back up next spring. Of course, if you’re not a DIYer, then give us a call as we’d be happy to do all the heavy lifting so you don’t have to! Otherwise, let’s get right to it!
Algae can be a ghastly force capable of taking over and damaging your pool if your pool chemistry is not kept in balance. Especially, when temperatures are over 50 degrees Fahrenheit. By keeping your chemistry in check and your pool free from leaves and debris, you’ll set yourself up for an easy opening next year.
Having a pool that’s filled to the brim can cause damage to your pool and your equipment once the temperatures fall below freezing. As a standard rule, keep the water filled below the skimmer. Consider blowing out the lines in your pool equipment to keep them from cracking if the water freezes and expands.
As mentioned above, keeping your pool filled right below the skimmer is ideal. Draining the entire pool leaves it vulnerable to external elements that can fall into your pool and damage it. Having the right amount of clean water can help form a protective barrier that keeps foreign debris from damaging the liner of your pool.
