When should you close your pool?

Pool winterization – Aldie, VA

We recommend closing your pool when the water is consistently below 60 degrees Fahrenheit. However, If you live in an area with several trees, leaves can quickly become your swimming pool’s number one enemy and nightmare. When this is the case, we recommend going ahead and closing your pool before the leaves take it over and clog the filtration system and stain your pool!

Closing your swimming pool at this time will also help minimize and prevent algae and bacteria growth during the colder months. The last thing any pool owner wants is to open their swimming pool in the spring and find a green pond. If you’re unsure if you should close your pool or not, please contact our service department for more information.
