Closing A Pool in 4 Steps and 4 Days

The end of the summer can be devastating to pool loungers everywhere. Don’t fret! Summer will be back soon. Until then, preserve the summer glory by taking the necessary steps to properly close your swimming pool in Michigan.

Day 1:

Step 1: Remove all in ground or above ground pool accessories from the pool and test your water!

Before closing your pool, you need to make sure that the pH level in the pool is between 7.6-7.8, the pool alkalinity is 80-100 and the calcium hardness is 150-250. You also need to shock your pool with a chlorine shock to bring the chlorine level to 10-12 ppm. Then, give the pool time to come down to its normal level around 1.5-3.5 ppm before adding your cover or winterizing chemicals. This is a good time to properly winterize your pool to keep the chemistry of the pool on track during its off season.

Is your water balanced? Then, move on to Day 2!
