What Happens When a Pool is Not Properly Closed?
In colder climates, the equipment on an inadequately winterized pool can freeze and become irreparably damaged when frozen parts begin to thaw. Extreme temperature fluctuations can ruin a filtration system and piping when not protected. In addition, Garden City Pools recommends a final water test and chemical balancing for pool water using specific products that are designed to protect pool surfaces and piping when not in use.
Cleaning Your Pool Before Closing
In addition to chemical balancing to limit algae growth and facilitate opening the following year, the sides and bottom of any pool must be thoroughly vacuumed and brushed to remove all debris prior to closing. Skimmer baskets should be cleaned and emptied, and all accessories rinsed before storage. Garden City Pools technicians provide these and additional optional services for Niagara Falls pool owners, including filter and tank cleaning and secure installation of any type of pool cover.
Draining the Water Lines
Disassembly of your pool’s equipment involves more than just pulling apart the piping. Our technicians drain and then dry all equipment and apply antifreeze treatments when necessary. Our technicians have been trained to safely shutdown any type of pool heater system and are also experienced with the maintenance of salt water systems.
