After a successful summer season, when the weather starts to cool down, there will be a time when you want to shut down your pool for the winter. Winter closings go a long way to protect your pool from harsh winter conditions, help prevent algae and bacteria growth while the pool is not in use, and can even help prevent potential accidents that can occur near an unsupervised pool. If you would like help closing your pool and learning exactly how to best protect your pool during the long winter season, call Leslie's and ask for our Pool Closing Service!

Just because no one will be using the pool during the winter does not mean that the pool will not require any maintenance. Preparing your swimming pool for winter can take up to a week, and involves not only a winter or a safety cover, but also includes balancing your water your chemistry, adding chemicals to prevent algae and bacteria build-up, winterizing your plumbing, and adjusting your pool equipment to run at shorter and less frequent intervals. This can sound like a lot of work, but with the right training, it can actually be a simple and pain-free process.

If you would like help with learning how to properly close your pool for the winter, give Leslie's a call and we would be happy to have one of our trained and friendly pool service technicians come to your house. Our technicians are available to help with many services, including winterizing your pipes, installing a winter or safety cover, and more. We are here to help prepare your pool for winter.
