Swimming Pool Closing Questions
How do you close a swimming pool?
Great question! We could explain it in words but instead we made a cool video – check out our pool closing video.
What is included in a Full Pool Closing?
We like to assure our customers that our swimming pool closings include everything to keep your pool safe all winter! The full list of what we do can be found in the chart on our pool closing page.
Is there anything I have to do before the pool closing?
We recommend you make sure the water is clear, balanced and you clean the bottom of your pool before the closing. We tell our customers to clean the bottom of the pool because don’t want to have dirt sitting in the bottom of your pool all winter. If you are one of our weekly maintenance customers you don’t have to worry about doing this because we will do it all for you during our last maintenance visit!
What time will you come to close my pool?
Unfortunately it’s really hard for us to give an exact time of when we will be at your house. This is because we never know how long a pool will take to close until we get there! What we can do is send you an email the day before letting you know where you are on our list for the day and roughly what time we will be there at.
What should I leave out for the pool closing?
Please leave out the pool cover, water bags (if necessary), plugs and any other pool closing parts specific for your pool.
Do I have to be home for the pool closing?
Nope! Just make sure we have access to the swimming pool.
Okay I think I still want to be home though. Can you call me before you come?
Of course! Just let our admin staff know when you book the appointment and they will add a note to your file.
What is the average time it takes to close a pool?
On average its 2 hours. However this ranges from pool to pool depending on size and cover.
When should I close my pool?
As late as possible. Anytime after Thanksgiving is when we recommend (especially if you have a safety cover).
What chemicals will you add when I close the pool?
We always add chlorine and anti-freeze.
If I have a tarp and waterbag cover – is it okay to hold it down with bricks or patio stones?
NO!!! If they fall into the pool they can damage your liner – costing you lots of $$$ to fix.
What forms of payment do you accept for the pool opening?
We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express. We require a credit card for all pool closings.
I booked my pool closing but the weather is still beautiful – can I reschedule?
Of course! We just ask you let us know 24 hours before the appointment. Please note if you don’t call and we show up at your house to close the pool and you want to reschedule or the pool is already closed there is a fee of $75 . That being said we are pretty understanding – if you forgot because you’ve been super busy with work, family etc. Call into our office to explain what happened and we will waive the fees.
