Pool Closing Tips
Balancing Chemicals Prior to Closing
A pool that is clean at closing time means that pool opening is easier the following season. Ideally, Fort Collins pools are closed and winterized as late in the season as possible, but prior to the first frost. Our pool experts recommend that water is tested and balanced at pool closing time to remove all traces of algae. pH levels should range between 7.2 and 7.6 and alkalinity between 80 and 120 ppm. Calcium hardness should range between 180 and 200 ppm. Friendly and knowledgeable Clarity Pools staff provides valuable advice for choosing the best products to achieve optimal results and are available for consultation and assistance at pool closing and year round.
How Temperature Changes Affect Pool Closing
Pool professionals recommend closing a pool in stages as temperatures begin to gradually drop. Unpredictable weather patterns in recent years include longer periods of warmer weather that require pool water to be checked more frequently as the colder weather slowly sets in. Lowering the phosphate level in your pool helps to limit persistent algae problems and improves the re-opening process for the next season. Ask Clarity Pools technicians for assistance on stretching out the pool season for as long as possible and for tips on lengthening the lifespan of your pool and its systems and equipment. Closing a pool is made simpler and more effective with professional maintenance while it is open.
While Your Pool is Closed…
Check your pool cover periodically during the off-season to make sure it is secure. Reset the cover if it is loose to prevent damage. Remove accumulated rain water and debris periodically and check water levels that may indicate a slow leak in the liner.
