Pool Closing Service

Our pool closing service involves several critical steps to protect the pool and equipment from winter weather and ensure that the pool is ready to go for the next season. Here are the primary steps involved in our pool closing process:

  1. Balancing the water chemistry: Before closing the pool, we make sure that the water chemistry is properly balanced, just like we do during a pool opening. This ensures that the water is clean and healthy during the winter months.
  2. Removing pool accessories: We remove any pool accessories, such as ladders, diving boards, and slides, to protect them from winter weather and ensure they are not damaged during the off-season.
  3. Cleaning the pool: We thoroughly clean the pool, including the walls, floor, and skimmer basket, to remove any debris or dirt that could cause damage to the pool or equipment during the winter.
  4. Draining the pool: We drain the pool to the appropriate level, taking into account the type of pool and the climate in the area.
  5. Winterizing the pool equipment: We take care to winterize the pool equipment, including the pump, filter, heater, and any other equipment, to protect it from freezing temperatures.
  6. Covering the pool: Finally, we install a pool cover to protect the pool from the elements, debris, and sunlight during the winter months.

The Hasbrouck Pool and Spa team has the expertise and experience to ensure that your pool is closed properly and ready for the next season. Contact us today to schedule your pool closing service!

Why Use a Professional Pool Closing Service?

Failing to professionally close your pool as the winter season approaches can lead to a range of issues and complications, which may result in significant damage, costly repairs, and potential safety concerns. These can include:

  1. Freezing Damage: When the temperature drops, water in your pool can freeze. This can cause extensive damage to your pool’s plumbing and filtration system. Frozen pipes can burst, leading to costly repairs and replacements.
  2. Chemical Imbalance: Without proper winterization and chemical treatment, your pool’s water can become imbalanced. This can result in the growth of algae and bacteria, making it harder to reopen the pool in the spring. Restoring water quality can be time-consuming and expensive.
  3. Debris Accumulation: Leaves, twigs, and other debris can accumulate in the pool throughout the winter. This debris can lead to staining, clogged filters, and damage to pool equipment.
  4. Cover Damage: A pool cover that isn’t properly installed can be blown away by strong winds or collapse under the weight of snow and ice. This exposes your pool to the elements and potential contamination.
  5. Safety Hazards: An improperly closed pool can pose safety hazards, especially if the cover isn’t securely fastened. It may become a danger to children or pets who might wander onto it.
  6. Longer Pool Opening Process: Not professionally closing your pool can extend the time and effort required to reopen it in the spring. It may take more time to clean, repair, and recondition the pool, delaying the enjoyment of your pool for the new season.
  7. Increased Maintenance Costs: Addressing these issues when you eventually reopen your pool can be more expensive than the cost of professional winterization. You’ll likely have to invest in repairs, chemicals, and other supplies to get your pool back in shape.

To avoid these complications and ensure the longevity and functionality of your pool, contact Hasbrouck Pool and Spa for your professional pool closing service. Our expert team has the knowledge and experience to prepare your pool for winter properly, safeguarding your investment and ensuring that you can enjoy your pool stress-free when the warm weather returns.

Pool FAQs

Pool water can turn green due to the presence of algae. Algae are microscopic plants that can grow in swimming pool water when there is enough sunlight, nutrients, and warm temperatures. They can be introduced to the pool through rainwater, wind, or from swimmers carrying them in from other bodies of water.

When algae grow in a swimming pool, they can quickly multiply and form colonies that turn the water green. The green color comes from chlorophyll, the same pigment found in plants, that helps the algae grow and photosynthesize.

If left untreated, algae can create a slimy layer on the pool walls and floor, making it slippery and unsafe to swim in. In addition, algae can reduce the effectiveness of the pool’s disinfectants, such as chlorine, which can lead to other problems with the water quality. Therefore, it’s important to regularly check and maintain the pool’s water chemistry and cleaning to prevent algae growth and keep the water clear and safe for swimmers.

If you see water leaking out of your pool, its time to call us so we can repair the problem, however if you cant find any signs of a leak other then the fact that your water level is dropping it could be evaporation.

On a hot day a surprising amount of pool water can be lost due to evaporation. Other factors that can effect evaporation include humidity, wind speed, and surface area of the pool.

an unpleasant odor coming from the pool may be caused by a variety of factors. One possible reason is the presence of high levels of combined chlorine, which can produce a strong chlorine odor. Another possible cause is the presence of organic matter, such as leaves and debris, that has accumulated in the pool and is breaking down, producing an unpleasant odor. It’s also possible that the pH balance of the pool water is off, which can impact the effectiveness of the pool’s sanitizer and create an unpleasant smell. Whatever the cause may be, we recommend you contact us to identify and resolve the issue. We can help diagnose the problem and recommend the appropriate solution to ensure the pool is safe and enjoyable for all swimmers.

Common causes of a malfunctioning pool pump can include a clogged or damaged impeller, air leaks in the suction line, or an electrical issue. If you suspect that your pool pump is not functioning properly, it’s important to address the issue as soon as possible to prevent further problems and to keep the pool running smoothly. If you are having problems with your pump, we  can diagnose and repair issues with the pump and other pool equipment.
