Closing Pool Tips
When it’s time to close your pool, Mr. B wants you to remember a few closing pool tips to make sure re-opening your pool next spring will be a breeze.
- Bring your filter indoors during the winter. While not mandatory, it will ensure the filter doesn’t crack or break in the winter, and make sure when you re-open in the spring you minimized unforeseen expenses.
- Bring in a water sample for us to test. Yes – we recommend testing the water during pool closing as well! Having properly balanced water is important over the off-season is as important as in-season.
- Vacuum and clean up any debris at the bottom of the pool, the cleaner the pool is when you close, the less you’ll have to clean when you re-open.
- Buy a winter cover. These covers are more durable and perfect for St. Louis winters.
