Closing the pool for another season can be bittersweet. To begin preparing to winterize your pool gather your supplies. Don't wait until the last minute to purchase necessary chemicals. Oxford Lumber Stores carry pool supplies.
Clean the entire pool area, test the water, run the filter for at least 24 hours before disassembling the filter for the season, drain the pool's water to the appropriate level, shut off the filter pump, heater, and any other equipment. Turn off the circuit to outdoor outlets that feed the pool equipment, testing to make sure the power is off.
