Before Closing Your Pool…

If you’re thinking about closing your pool soon, it’s a good idea to test your water balance in advance so that you have time to circulate any necessary adjusting products before the closing date. So use your test strips to check your pH & alkalinity levels and raise them if necessary. At closing, we prefer to see both of these on the high end of the ok range, especially if you use the kind of winter cover that allows rain water to drain through into the pool.
We also recommend a concentrated algaecide and a Stain Prevent (especially for drain-through covers, pools with heaters, and any relatively new liners) to be added and circulated right before closing.
We’re still hoping for more warm weather though! But if you think the time has come, those are some tips for preparing properly.
