Pool closing time is usually a sad time of year. However, closing your pool properly will make opening it much easier next season. The weather is getting cold, the leaves are changing color and the warm memories of summertime fun are fading away. This is not usually the time of year that people like to think about their swimming pools but it is really the most important time of year to pay attention to the pool to avoid unnecessary problems and costly repairs come springtime. Whether warm climate or cold, we have some simple instructions for protecting your pool.
The following are generalized instructions on how to properly close an in-ground and an above-ground pool:
