Now that summer is coming to an end, it is time to plan to close your pool for winter.¬† In our area it is best to have your pool closed professionally before the first frost¬†to reduce the chance of winter damage.¬† For the best protection, we offer our professional closings services by qualified, experienced technicians.¬† We also continue to offer a 10% discount off our basic closing and cover installation service to in-ground pool customers.¬† To qualify, you must have purchased our chemicals ($250.00 worth this past season). Weekly vacuum service customers, who use our chemicals, will receive the discount automatically (see closing in-ground pricing schedule).
Above ground pool customers¬†continue to receive special low pricing. (see above-ground closing price schedule)
Important notes regarding our service:¬† We do not vacuum¬† pools after October 12th¬† because of¬† falling leaves dropping faster than we can vacuum.¬† While discussing leaves, some may work their way into the pool during the winter regardless of how secure the cover is fastened.¬† Also note, that it is not necessary to¬† remove diving boards and motors. Over the years we have found that the repeated removal and re-installation of¬† these items adds to their¬† wear. In fact,¬† they are designed to withstand¬† our winter conditions.¬† However, it is very important to keep solid covers pumped off during the winter¬† to prevent them from falling in or¬† ripping from the weight of accumulated water.
And finally, if you do have a DE filter, you should request that we rinse or acid wash your grids to ensure¬† efficient filter operation next season.¬† To remove your grids from the tank for cleaning, it is necessary for us to loosen and remove the band that holds your tank together.¬† In the spring, Aquavita will re-install the tank “belly band” as part of our “Opening Service”. If you open your pool:¬† carefully tighten the filter band securely to ensure that your tank is properly fastened and will operate safely under pressure and not leak.
To request a closing, please complete ¬†our “Fall Closing Request” form below. We will make every effort to accommodate the date you ask for, however we do schedule on a ‚Äúfirst received‚Ä¶first served basis‚ÄĚ. If the closing date you select is not available, we will call you to arrange¬†for another convenient day.¬† Please note that we DO NOT schedule closings on Saturdays or Sundays.¬† Saturdays are reserved for rain days and emergency service.
