Getting Your Pool Ready for Closing

Saint Joe Pool Pool Closing Process
Once an appointment is scheduled, our qualified pool crew will arrive at your Apalachicola residence and begin pool closing procedures promptly by lowering the water level to at least several inches below the skimmer and water jets and disposing of all waste water in an ecological manner. Accessories including ladder and baskets are fully dismantled and prepared for off-season storage. Piping is disconnected and thoroughly dried by blowing air out through the pump to evacuate any remaining water. Ask Saint Joe Pool staff about optional cleaning services for cleaning your pool and equipment when you call to schedule an appointment.
Protecting Your Pool While it is Closed
Depending on your particular filtration system, our trained technicians set and adjust controls to protect equipment while not in use. Sand filter settings are adjusted accordingly and pressure gauges are removed—the proper components are removed from pools that use cartridge filters. Water lines are purged and skimmers sealed to prevent water infiltration, and if required, antifreeze is applied to prevent damage caused by freezing and fluctuating temperatures. Water jets are also sealed to prevent water from entering the pipes and disassembled parts are prepared for storage. As the final step, Saint Joe Pool pros tailor the final application of chemicals to limit the growth of algae and facilitate a smooth pool opening next season.
Pool Cover Installation and Heater Closure
Saint Joe Pool technicians securely install any type of pool cover and also oversee the safe closure of either your gas, electric, thermal or solar water heater.
