Winter Survival Guide for Your Pool: The Importance of Closing

Swimming pool closing is not just a seasonal chore; it’s an essential maintenance step that helps protect your pool from the harsh winter elements and ensures it remains in optimal condition. Here’s why investing in professional swimming pool closing services is a smart choice for Long Island pool owners:

Prevent Winter Damage

  • Long Island winters can be harsh, with freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall. Without proper winterization, your swimming pool’s plumbing and equipment can be vulnerable to damage. Our expert swimming pool closing services include draining the water to the appropriate level, blowing out the lines, and winterizing your pool equipment to shield it from the cold.

Protect Your Investment 

  • Your swimming pool is a significant investment, and neglecting it during the off-season can lead to costly repairs down the road. Our swimming pool closing services are designed to protect your investment by ensuring that your pool remains in great condition throughout the winter months.

Ensure Clean and Clear Water

  • Improperly closing your pool can lead to water quality issues when you reopen it in the spring. Our comprehensive swimming pool closing process includes thorough water testing and treatment to ensure your pool water remains clean and clear throughout the offseason.

Leak Detection Long Island, NY

Signs You May Need Pool Leak Detection

Pool leaks can lead to costly repairs and damage if not addressed promptly. To protect your investment, it’s essential to be aware of the common signs that may indicate a pool leak, including:

Unexplained water loss

  • If your pool’s water level drops more than 1/4 inch per day, it may be a sign of a leak. Some leaks may cause you to lose an inch of water every day!

Cracks or gaps in pool surfaces

  • Visible cracks or gaps in the pool’s plaster, tile, or decking can indicate potential leaks.

Wet spots around the pool

  • Soggy spots or standing water near the pool may be a result of a leak.

Visible tear in the pool liner

  • If you notice tears in your pool liner or pool wall, there is most likely a leak in that area where water is escaping.

Chemical imbalance

  • If you’re constantly adding chemicals to maintain your pool’s water balance, it may be due to a leak diluting the chemicals.
