FAQs

What do I need to have prepared before you show up for the pool closing?

 

It is recommended you clean your pool before we arrive.

Having the pool free of leaves and debris makes the spring cleanup process a lot easier and often saves you money on chemicals.

Also please ensure your outside water is turned on,  and an outside electrical outlet is powered on and working.

Does someone need to be home?

 

No.  We don't require anyone to be home to properly winterize the pool just as long as we have access to everything we need.  If you are not going to be home, please ensure that the gate is unlocked and we have access to the winter cover and winterization parts.

 

Do you clean the pool before closing it?

 

Our crews will often scoop some leaves but a proper pool cleaning is not part of the pool closing process.  We recommend you clean the pool the day before your scheduled closing for best results.

 

What chemicals are included with a pool closing?

 

All the antifreeze we require is included in the price of the pool closing.  Closing chemical kits are $49 extra and available upon request.  We do recommend adding algaecide and a metal sequestering agent to your pool before it's closed for the winter for the most effective transition into spring. If you would like to use your own chemicals and do not want to purchase a closing chemical kit, simply leave your own pool chemicals out on your your pool deck for our crews to add to your pool before the cover is placed for the winter.

 

Are you insured? Do you cover the cost of damages if the pool wasn't winterized properly?

 

Yes we are insured and we cover all of our work.

What are some extra charges I need to be aware about?

Water bags - If we require more water bags to ensure the winter cover stays on the pool, they will be laid down and filled at a cost of $16.99 per bag. 

Winterizing plugs - if required are $2.99 for ABS threaded and $5.99 for rubber expandable.  

Multiple pumps - if your pool has auxiliary pumps for fountains, water features, etc., it is considered a complicated system and will incur and extra $40 charge.

Vinyl fitted cover - Installation of a vinyl fitted cover is often quite time consuming and may incur an additional charge of up to $40.

Is there anything I need to be worried about?

Only our most trusted team members with many years of experience are responsible for our pool closings.  You can rest easy knowing that every aspect of your pool will be winterized effectively.  Our work is guaranteed and we stand by it.  If any piece of pool equipment is damaged due to our oversight, it will be repaired or replaced at no extra charge or hassle.
