Summer Is Almost Over: Tips for Closing Your Pool



I hate to say it, but…It’s almost time to start thinking about closing our pools. I mention this now so we all have time to get the pool in order. Just a few tips to get ready to close:

  • Get water properly balanced to avoid scale & algae. Alkalinity should test at 80 – 120. PH should test at 7.2 – 7.8
  • Clean debris & vacuum thoroughly (this makes opening even easier)
  • Remove any phosphates (hinders algae growth)

Following these few easy tips now will make closing (and opening) much simpler! We will be once again offering our time & money saving pool closing kits. More to come on this subject as the time draws nearer. In the meantime…Happy rest of the summer!
