Our trained technicians can open or close your pool for you. You’ll rest easy knowing your pool or spa and equipment are handled correctly and will be ready for the summer or winter season. We offer a variety of different plans depending on your needs. For our Openings and Closings, we deal strictly with the mechanicals of the pool. We do not do any type of cleaning or vacuuming, and we do not add any chemicals (except for DE for Diatomaceous Earth Filters at the opening and anti-freeze at closing).

To ensure that your pool is closed properly and on time, please follow the steps below BEFORE your scheduled closing date:

1. Have your water tested at least one week before the closing date and add winter chemicals at least 24 hours before your closing to allow for circulation. (NO chemicals will be added at the time of the closing except for anti-freeze.)
2. Backwash the filter prior to lowering water. (DO NOT ADD D.E.)
3. Lower water level one inch below the skimmer using backwash setting. (You must shut the valves to the skimmer off in order to drain the water below the skimmer.) For safety covers, the water level should be 2 inches below the skimmer.)
4. After water level is lowered, ensure your valves are closed and all timers are off. (If this step is missed, your pool could accidentally drain)
5. Have all winter equipment by the pool or accessible to the Service Tech.
6. For NON SALT pools, please be sure your chlorinator is EMPTY.
