When should you close your swimming pool?
It is recommended, but especially more pleasant to close your swimming pool as late as possible. Therefore, if you want to close your spa, you must continue to do your weekly maintenance until your closing appointment. As a result, it is important to keep good water chemistry until the winterization. This way, your liner will remain in good condition and will minimize the discoloration and folds. If you have a concrete swimming pool, the paint will last longer.
The recommended period for your swimming pool closing is mid-October (between October 10th and October 25th). For those who really want to maximize their season and do their closing as late as possible in order for the water to freeze while its clear, the third week of November can still be a good choice. However, it is imperative to let your pump run until closing. Consequently, it is imperative to let your spa run until closing. If this is not done, water can freeze in the pipes and cause damage to the filtration and to your swimming pool.
The closing period remains the same either you have in-ground, above-ground, fiber glass or concrete swimming pool.
