Once all steps are complete, walk around the pool and make sure everything looks secure. Pick up any equipment, and store in a dry location.
Use a cover drain to remove water from the cover as it accumulates thru the winter
COMMON Q&A ABOUT WINTERIZING.
Do I have a leak in my liner, It looks like my pool is losing water?
You may have a liner leak but more likely you are losing water because rainwater on the cover is pushing the pool water out. Similar to putting ice in a cup, rainwater is raising the level of the water underneath to a point where it pushes water out. Then when you drain the rainwater pool water level will be lower.
Why did my expansion pillow pop?
The expansion pillow is meant to absorb ice to protect it from damaging the liner. So if it popped it is likely because it was doing what it was meant to do.
Does ECL close Aboveground pools?
ECL only closes pools with safety style covers that fasten to a deck or concrete. The pool must be properly balanced and are free of debris at the time of the closing. We have experienced that most customers find that when they see the simplicity of closing an aboveground pool, they feel that they could have done it themselves.
We hope this will help you thru the process of closing your pool. We also offer pool closing classes every year. They usually start the third Monday of September and continue on for the next 3 weeks. Contact us for details.
