Pool Winterization FAQs

It's been a great summer, and now it's sadly time to put away the pool toys and start planning the winterization for your pool. How do you know when is the right time to winterize your pool, and how do you even go about this task to begin with? At Paradise Landscaping, we take all of the confusion out of this routine task by performing it for you with the best pool service at the Lake of the Ozarks. Here are a few things you need to know as you gear up to have you pool winterized, and how you can help us through the process.

When To Winterize Your Pool

There are two reasons that you'll consider closing your pool in the Midwest: fear of freezing it, and fear of freezing yourself. Generally, the first to come is freezing yourself, so by the time you hit Labor Day it's time to consider getting your pool winterized, and definitely calling Paradise Landscaping to set up your appointment. You can sometimes get away with waiting until the third or fourth week of September to close the pool, but you'll want to already have a scheduled appointment set in place.

What Does Winterizing Entail?

Winterizing your pool doesn't have to be a huge project, but it will take some time, so that's why it's important to let us know when you're ready. The most important thing is to get the water out of the lines, and most of the water out of the pool. After draining the water we will do some routine cleaning around your pool to make sure everything is ready to go for the winter before closing it up.

Where Is My Winter Cover?

If we de-winterized your pool at the beginning of the swimming season, and if you requested us to store your winter cover, then we have it! We provide off-site storage for your cover so that you not only don't have to worry where it is, but it's also in safe hands through the summer. Occasionally misfortunes can befall a cover through the summer, whether it be due to temperatures, rodents, or accidental punctures, but we care for your cover and make sure that nothing happens.

Is it a Good Idea to Make Repairs Before Winterizing?

Yes! Whenever you notice any defects in your pool, such as cracking, bulging, or leaking it's always a good idea to get them fixed immediately. Especially when you're preparing it for storage over the winter. Winter weather has a nasty habit of taking small issues and making them bigger if not address properly. What may be a small crack at the end of summer could be much larger in the beginning of summer due to the expansion of ice and cold temperatures. You can trust Paradise Landscaping for all of your pool maintenance at the Lake of the Ozarks.
