Please note Pool Closing season is a very busy time for our service department. We are taking pre-bookings for up to 30 pool closings for each week between October 1 and November 10. These spots will be filled on a first-come first-served basis. We will have a waiting list for bookings after the first 30 for each week, but we cannot guarantee when or if we will be able to close each pool on the waiting list.
Please note we clean all salt cells on site at time of closing. This is to help maintain the life of the cell. The fee for this is $24.99 and will be automatically added to your closing invoice.
Please note we return all cartridge filters to our shop for proper cleaning and storage. This is to ensure they are in proper condition for spring openings. The fee for this is $89.00 and will be automatically added to your closing invoice.

Terms and Conditions

If your pool is over 800 sq. ft. or if you have a water feature, extra charges may apply.
We are not responsible for winter covers coming loose due to water bags.
We are not responsible for the effects of hydrostatic pressure. Water exists in the earth and can, at times, cause liners to float, or concrete or fiberglass pools to pop out of the ground. We do not conduct soil water-saturation tests unless requested by a customer. Our Service technicians will assess apparent and observable site conditions, surface water, past and future weather forecasts in order to reduce the effects of hydrostatic pressure.
The customer is responsible for keeping their pool area and their pool equipment area safe, including drainage, non-skid decking, proper fencing and gates and accepts all responsibility for any injury resulting.
