No one is ready to start thinking about winter, but as the calendar turns to August and summer passes its peak, it’s time to start making appointments for a custom winter pool cover. Here are a few things to remember as we draw closer to the offseason:
Schedule Installment Early
The last thing you want to do is wait until October or November to install a winter pool cover. In fact, as the leaves turn and the weather gets colder, many of our customers begin cover installations as early as late August. Installing early avoids any chance of cold weather damage and reduces the amount of leaves and debris you have to remove before close.
Winterize Your Equipment & Lines
An important aspect of having your pool closed properly is making sure that all equipment is addressed. Filters and lines need special care to prevent damage to your pool system during the winter. When it’s time to put the cover on and close for the summer, make sure your pool equipment is winterized and assessed. Unusable or cracked equipment should be replaced for next season.
Choose Your Cover
At Arrow Pool, we’ve been providing pool closing and cover services for nearly 50 years, so we have seen and worked with just about every type of cover (old and new). If you’re having trouble rolling out your old cover, we can help. If you’re ready for a new one, we can install anything from standard to automatic covers.
If you’re comfortable and experienced closing your own pool, more power to you! However, make sure you read up on all that needs to be done. At Arrow Pool, we provide full-service pool closings that include cover installations, winterization of equipment, winterizing chemicals, filter cleaning and equipment maintenance.
