Closing your pool is an essential part of winter preparation.
It will prevent you from spending valuable time maintaining your pool over the winter months when you’re not using it anyway. Properly closing the pool before winter will make opening it in the coming summer much easier. It will also prevent problems that can occur from winter temperatures and freezing that can compromise the integrity of your pool.
However, for many people, closing the pool for winter can be a big undertaking. If you don’t have the time, expertise, or tools needed, we can help you with seasonal pool closing.
When is the Right Time to Close?
Waiting until the right time to close your pool will ensure that your winterizing will last throughout the season. In Utah, mid-October is usually the right season for pool closings. A good rule of thumb is to wait until the daily temperatures are consistently in the 60’s.
What’s the Point of Closing My Pool for Winter?
Closing your pool for the winter has three main purposes:
Prevents costly and time-consuming maintenance over the winter.
Keeps your pool and any attached equipment (like the water filtration and heating system) safe throughout winter freezes.
Preps your pool for spring so that there won’t be impossible-to-remove scale, calcium deposits, and algae growth when it gets warm again and you open your pool for the summer season.
