3 Professional Tips for Closing Your Swimming Pool

Sultry summer days are turning to beautiful fall evenings. You have loved every bit of summer, and now it’s time to put away all the aquatic fun and get ready for sweatshirts, football, and cider. Although you absolutely adore all things fall, it’s always a bittersweet time of year. To make it easier, here are 3 professional tips for closing your swimming pool.

Don’t Leave the Leaves

One of the best tips we can give is don’t leave the leaves! Those gorgeous fall leaves will soon be turning shades of red, orange, and yellow… and heading straight for your pool as they fall off the trees. Don’t leave them in your water! Decaying leaves are a breeding ground for algae and are awful for staining the bottom of your pool. So scoop them out, and set the stage for the perfect closing.

The Perfect Temperature

So, when exactly is the right time to close your pool? Truly, the perfect temperature = the perfect time. Wait until days cool consistently to 65 degrees or below. It will be a major help in the decrease of algae growth. Then, adding your closing chemicals and balancing your water will be a breeze. Need some help?
