Now that it’s August, we’re officially seeing the end of summer on the horizon, and for pool owners in Wisconsin, the time to schedule a pool closing is approaching. Actual pool closing should happen when the temperature of the pool water is consistently below 60 degrees.
Of course, you won’t want to swim in the pool once it starts dipping below 60 degrees, but you don’t want to immediately close it either. If you close your pool too soon and there are still lots of warm days left, algae might grow in your pool. If this happens, reopening the pool next year will definitely be more work.
Due to this, the ideal time to close your pool is usually the second half of September or potentially even October if you have a heated pool. Even if you stop using the pool after Labor Day like most people, you’ll still want to wait a few weeks to close it.
Waiting also gives you time to clean the pool, which you’ll want to make sure you do to have an easier pool opening next season. At The Pool People, we offer a comprehensive pool closing package with additional add-ons that allow you to customize the package to suit your needs.
When to Schedule a Pool Closing
The best time to schedule a pool closing with us is actually right about now, in mid-August. The earlier you can schedule the better, because pool closing services are in high demand at the end of summer.
You don’t want to be stuck waiting longer because you didn’t schedule anything prior to Labor Day. If you want to ensure your pool is closed in the optimal timeframe, definitely call by mid to late August to schedule a pool closing with us.
When you call The Pool People to schedule a pool closing, one of our knowledgeable associates will review all the options we offer. Our standard closing is a flat price, but we do offer a lot of extras as well that you can roll into your pool closing services for an additional cost.
Some of these options include cleaning the pool cover in addition to other add-on services. We want to make sure our customers are happy and well cared for, so feel free to ask about anything you may want to be done with your pool closing services and we’ll see how we can help.
