Unfortunately, here in Omaha, the sun eventually sets on the swimming season. At the end of the pool season each pool must be properly winterized. The winterization process includes blowing the water out of the lines and equipment so the pipes will not freeze and crack.
Much like the timing of opening the swimming pools, closing the pools is determined by the change of the seasons and the return to colder weather. Much to the kids dismay, it seems the school year starts earlier and earlier each year, once the kids start heading back to class we begin to book our first closings toward the end of August. However, a few lucky pool owners do have the luxury of an automatic cover or a heated pool. This allows those pools to be kept open even longer, sometimes as late as October
Our closing service is all-inclusive, and we do everything to get your pool 100% ready for the winter. Our pool closing service in completed in less than a day, in total usually somewhere between 4-6 hours for 1 technician.
What is necessary for closing down swimming pool before winter?
