Pool Closing

Like all good things, every pool season must come to an end. Not only will you miss entertaining family and friends at the pool, you’re now faced with the task of closing your pool for the winter.

Like opening your pool, closing your pool involves an important series of steps to make sure your pool and pool equipment will be properly prepared to endure the winter. If not closed properly, you could be facing very expensive pool service and maintenance issues when it comes time to open it again.

Trust the pool experts at Lakeshore Pools & Hot Tubs to properly close your pool for the winter.

Our pool experts will make sure that your pool is completely prepared for the winter, resulting in a smoother opening in the spring. We’ll lower the water level, add the proper chemicals, and winterize your equipment and the complete underground pool piping system so you won’t have to worry over the cold winter months.

Select from two pool closing packages that will fit your needs and budget!

Standard Pool Closing Package

Traditional Pool Closing with complete winterization of your pool
(Maximum time allocated 2 hours x 2 person crew) ****

Our Standard Pool Closing Package includes:

  • lowering the pool water level
  • adding pool winterizing chemicals (MSRP $35 – chlorine & algaecide )
  • winterizing pool equipment
  • removing pool fittings and pool deck equipment *
  • blowing out pool waterlines
  • installing winter cover

We recommend you bring a sample of your pool water to the store ONE WEEK before closing. Water left over the winter months changes significantly and if this is not balanced before closing, it can cause damage to the pool liner, concrete, or fiberglass surfaces.
