Alas, pool closing time is approaching. Not only must we bid farewell to the sweet days of summer spent splashing around, but we must close our beautiful swimming pools.
At Goodall Pools & Spas, we have assembled five fantastic tips to help you close your pool like a pro and save some precious time and money in the process!
1. Proper Planning Prevents Pool Predicaments
Before diving into the pool closing extravaganza, it’s crucial to have a well-thought-out plan. Proper planning prevents predicaments.
The first step in your plan should be to clean your pool like you’re prepping for a pool party – removing debris, leaves, and any lurking algae. A sparkling pool is a happy pool!
2. Balancing Act: The Pool Chemistry Edition
Chemistry — the magic behind keeping your pool water pristine and inviting!
To ensure your pool stays in tip-top shape during its winter hibernation, balance those chemical levels like a maestro conducting a symphony.
At Goodall Pools & Spas, we’ve got the inside scoop on maintaining the perfect pH between 7.4 and 7.6, alongside the ideal total alkalinity. It’s like a chemical tango — balanced and harmonious!
3. Shock It, Don’t Stop It!
No, we’re not talking about shocking your pool with scandalous stories — but a little pool shock treatment can indeed do wonders!
Shocking your pool ensures that all lingering contaminants take a backseat, allowing your pool to hibernate without fear of unwanted visitors like algae. Say goodbye to the green monsters and hello to a serene pool come spring!
4. Cozy Up: Winter Chemicals Are Your Pool’s Best Friend
Just like a warm blanket on a chilly night, winterizing chemicals are your pool’s best friend during the colder months.
Adding algaecide can help keep your pool water crystal clear and algae-free throughout winter. Think of it as giving your pool a snug winter sweater — cozy and protected!
5. Cover Your Pool: The Ultimate Pool Blanket Party
Last but certainly not least, give your pool the ultimate “blanket party” with a high-quality cover.
A well-fitted pool cover not only keeps debris and leaves out but also retains heat in the water, preventing unnecessary evaporation. Goodall Pools & Spas has the perfect pool covers for your beloved aquatic haven!
