People underestimate the importance of closing your pool the right way. We’ve seen first-hand all the unwanted surprises that occur when an improperly closed pool is reopened the following year, it’s not pretty. When you leave it to our experts, you’re ensuring that your pool is properly and securely tucked away for winter.
Closing your pool yourself can be extremely risky. Deterioration can come from many different sources, such as freeze-thaw cycles. Water that freezes and thaws repeatedly can cause cracks in the lines and leaks behind the pool shell, resulting in loose tiles and copings that are hollow, cracked, or even fall off.
Taking all the water out can result in it popping out of the ground due to hydrostatic pressure. As a result, the shell and all its lines will be damaged. Replacing a popped pool costs more than installing a new one. To prevent floating liners, liner pools need water to maintain a constant level. In the long run, proper winterization can reduce your costs by preventing any new damage.
If the sanitizer level drops during the offseason, your pool will slowly turn into a swamp. In addition, the pH should be raised to accommodate the acid rain (snow) that will enter. Over the winter, it will lower the pH level. If calcium levels are too low, deterioration of the plaster or paint can occur. Not only are they an eyesore, algae-infested pools are time-consuming and expensive to remove and clean during the spring.
