Pool Closing in Orlando

Pool Winterizing in Central & Southwest Florida

As the sun in Orlando mellows and the days get shorter, it's time to say goodbye to the swimming season. But don't worry— Fiji Pools is here to help you prepare your pool for the colder months ahead and ensure a smooth reopening when the seasons change.

Closing your pool involves much more than just covering it up. It entails a series of careful steps, like adjusting water chemistry, lowering water levels, and winterizing plumbing systems. At Fiji Pools, we handle each of these steps with precision and care so you can rest easy knowing that your pool is ready for you once the warm weather returns (or until you invest in a pool heater).

We understand that closing a pool in Orlando comes with unique challenges. That's why we approach each pool individually, considering factors like pool type, age, and exposure to weather conditions. When you choose Fiji Pools for your pool closing needs, you're choosing a service that values quality, thoroughness, and your peace of mind. Let us take care of closing your pool, while you enjoy the beauty of the changing seasons.

What Is Pool Closing?

Properly closing your swimming pool during the off-season, especially in colder months, is crucial for its maintenance. This important process involves a series of steps designed to safeguard your pool from potential damage caused by freezing temperatures. These steps include adjusting water chemistry to prevent algae growth, lowering water levels to prevent pipe damage, installing winterizing plugs, and securing the pool cover to keep out debris.

The ultimate goal of pool closing is to keep your pool in optimal condition throughout the winter, ensuring a hassle-free reopening when the swimming season returns. By relying on professionals like Fiji Pools, you can rest assured that this task will be carried out thoroughly and accurately, helping you avoid costly repairs in the future.

The Benefits of Pool Closing

 Investing in professional pool closing services offers numerous benefits that go beyond mere pool maintenance. 

Here are some reasons why it's a wise choice:

  • Prevents damage: By properly winterizing your pool, you can prevent potential damage caused by freezing temperatures and harsh weather conditions.
  • Cost-effective: It helps you avoid expensive repairs in the future due to improper winterization or neglect during the off-season.
  • Saves time: Closing a pool personally can be time-consuming. Hiring a professional service allows you to save valuable time and effort.
  • Enhances safety: A securely covered pool during the off-season helps prevent accidental falls or drowning, especially in households with pets or children.
  • Maintains pool health: Proper closing procedures, including water chemical adjustments, help prevent algae growth, maintain water clarity, and preserve the pool's integrity.
  • Simplifies reopening: A well-closed pool ensures a smooth and hassle-free reopening when the swimming season returns.

The Pool Closing Process: What Does It Involve?

At Fiji Pools, we adhere to a systematic approach to pool closing that includes a series of carefully executed steps:

  • Adjusting water chemistry: We start by balancing the pH, alkalinity, and calcium hardness levels to optimal levels. This step is crucial in preventing scale buildup and corrosion. We also add a winterizing chemical kit to inhibit algae growth.
  • Lowering water level: To reduce the risk of damage due to freezing and thawing, we lower the water level to an appropriate height. It's usually done beneath the skimmer mouth for mesh covers and 18-24 inches from the top for solid covers.
  • Cleaning the pool: All debris, including leaves, insects, and grime, is thoroughly removed from the pool. We also backwash the filter to ensure it's clean before the pool is closed.
  • Installing winterizing plugs: We place winterizing plugs in the return lines and skimmers to keep water out of the pipes. This helps prevent pipe damage due to freezing.
  • Covering the pool: Lastly, we install a sturdy, high-quality pool cover to keep out debris, rainwater, and snow. We secure it tightly to ensure it withstands the winter months.

Trust our team to handle your pool closing with the utmost care and precision. We understand that every pool is different, and we tailor our services to meet your specific needs. Contact us for a smooth and stress-free pool closing experience.

Why You Shouldn't DIY Pool Closing

While it can be tempting to attempt closing your pool by yourself, it's essential to understand that pool winterization is a complex task that requires in-depth knowledge and expertise. 

Here are a few reasons why you should trust the professionals at Fiji Pools to close your pool:

  • Risk of damage: Without the proper know-how, you could inadvertently cause damage to your pool's plumbing system, cover, or interior. This could lead to costly repairs or replacements that far outweigh the cost of professional pool closing services.
  • Chemical balance: Achieving and maintaining the proper water chemistry is crucial to prevent the growth of algae and bacteria. Our technicians have the training and experience to do this accurately.
  • Time and effort: Pool closing is a time-consuming and labor-intensive task. Instead of spending your valuable time on pool maintenance, you could be spending it with family or enjoying other activities.
  • Safety concerns: Handling pool chemicals and equipment without appropriate training can pose safety risks. It's always safer to leave such tasks to the professionals.
  • Long-term savings: Properly winterizing your pool extends its lifespan and reduces the chances of issues arising when you're ready to swim again. This can save you money in the long run.

By entrusting Fiji Pools with your winterization needs, you can rest assured that your pool is being cared for by knowledgeable and experienced professionals. We handle all aspects of pool closing efficiently and thoroughly, saving you time, effort, and potential future costs.
