Pool Opening and Closing Procedures

Jeff Ellis Management offers pool opening and closing procedures for facilities that don't have the luxury of staying open year-round. Whether it's the start of spring or the beginning of fall, seasonal pool preparations are a must. Our job is to make the transition easy so that you don't have to worry about all of the steps required to open and close a pool.

pool opening and closing procedures

One of the first steps of pool opening procedures is removing the cover if one is in place. Our staff takes care of blowing off debris, cleaning the cover, and properly storing it until next season. Next we address turning on the pool pump and checking all pieces of equipment for leaks and corrosion. Our pool opening process also includes:

  • Backwashing the filter
  • Shocking the pool
  • Ensuring proper water level
  • Balancing chlorine, pH and alkaline levels
  • Brushing, skimming and vacuuming
  • Cleaning up areas around the pool
  • And much more

When fall arrives it's time to winterize the pool. Our pool closing procedures include:

  • Brushing, skimming and vacuuming
  • Draining the pool or lowering the water level
  • Removing water from pipes and equipment
  • Removal of handrails, ladders and fixtures if possible
  • Securing the pool cover
  • And much more
