Pool Closing Services

Our Pool Closing Services

Ensure your pool is winter-ready with our professional pool closing services. We blow out the lines, drain and hose out filters and pumps, install winter plugs and gizmos, disconnect accessories, and cover the pool for a worry-free off-season.

Getting your swimming pool ready for winter can feel overwhelming and you can damage it by not closing it properly. Trust Carlton Pools to safeguard your pool.


Blowing Out the Lines

Blowing out the lines is a crucial part of closing down your pool for the winter. This process uses an air compressor to push all the water out of your pool's plumbing system. Doing this keeps the pipes from freezing and breaking when it gets cold.

Our experts ensure not a single drop of water is left behind, protecting your investment from winter damage.

After that, we drain and clean your filter and motor to guarantee they're in top shape for a smooth start next spring.

Draining and Hosing Out Your Filter and Pump

Taking special care in draining and cleaning your pool's filtration system and water pump is crucial. Draining removes the water that could freeze, leading to cracks and damage. Hoses are used to wash off the dirt on both devices thoroughly, ensuring they remain free from debris like leaves or insects.

Cleaning also means checking for any signs of wear or necessary repairs on pipes and seals. Paying attention to these details now can help avoid more significant issues when it's time to jump back into your pool come spring.

Making sure everything is spotless ensures a smoother start-up next season, which keeps maintenance costs low and extends the life of your filter and pump.

Installing Winter Plugs and Gizmos

After emptying and cleaning your filter and pump, the following step is to put in winter plugs and devices. These tools are essential for keeping water out of your pipes during the colder months.

Technicians fit these winter plugs securely into the spots where water typically enters your pool's system. This action is vital to avoid damage from freezing.

Then, they install devices designed to absorb the expansion pressure from ice forming in your pool. These gadgets either float on top or slot into specific places to prevent cracks when it gets cold.

They serve as a protective measure for both your swimming area's structure and surface during the chilly season.

Disconnecting Pool Accessories

Prepare for winter by disconnecting pool accessories like ladders and handrails to avoid potential damage from ice and snow accumulation. Remove any attached fittings or fixtures, such as diving boards and slides, to safeguard them during the colder months.

This simple step can help protect your equipment from freezing temperatures and harsh weather conditions.

Covering the Pool

Preparing for winter includes the important task of covering the pool. This means carefully placing a durable and weather-resistant cover over the pool to shield it from debris, harsh weather conditions, and sunlight.

A securely fitted cover helps prevent algae growth and ensures that the water stays clean during the off-season. Covering the pool also acts as a safety measure by preventing accidental access by children or pets.

A well-fitted pool cover also aids in heat retention and reduces evaporation of water and chemicals. By keeping out impurities like leaves, twigs, and dirt particles, it minimizes cleaning efforts when reopening the pool in spring.
