Above Ground Closing Instructions

1. Above Ground Closing Instructions Approximately forty-eight (48) hours prior to closing your aboveground pool, bring in one QT of your pool water to our store for analysis. Winterizing your pool properly is critical because your water will not circulate in your pool for the next several months. Water chemistry is important to the longevity of your liner and any other parts that it comes in contact with during this period. For example:

  • Copper or iron in your water can stain your liner.
  • Improper PH may be very destructive and corrosive to the pool and its equipment.
  • Algae will be easier to get rid of NOW than in the spring. #lovemypool

Please utilize our free water test bottle or use a CLEAN one QT plastic container. Do not use empty chemical containers. Also, bring a list of your chemicals that you have at home with you.

2. If you have a solar blanket, remove it by slowly lifting over the edge of the pool, being careful not to catch or tear it.

3. Rinse any debris off blanket. Use “Teddy Bear Cover Cleaner” to clean and deodorize it before storing for the winter. Gently brush cleaner over entire surface. Rinsing is not necessary and will reduce odors and protect the cover. Above Ground Closing Instructions

4. Fold cover carefully and store in a plastic  20 or 30 gallon tub with a tight lid. It should not be stored in a shed or garage, where ants or mice may destroy it!

5. Vacuum your pool of debris and remove leaves with a leaf net because they can stain your liner.
