As the swimming season winds down, it is time to start thinking ahead about what needs to be completed to close your inground pool properly for the cold days ahead. Here are key items on your to-do list to help preserve your pool water and get ready for the next season.
When to winterize: In order to have your best pool water next year, it is important to time the closing of your pool based on the temperature vs. an arbitrary date. You can help keep algae from growing by waiting to shut down for the season when it is consistently cooler. Our team at Caribbean Pools & Spas can help you determine the timing of your pool closure.
Deep cleaning: Take the time to really clean your pool well at the end of the season just like you did at the beginning. This will help remove debris and items that could change your water over the winter. Scrub the surfaces with your pool brush as well as vacuum.
Chemical balance: As you are winding down the season, really begin to watch your water chemistry, so that you can work on balancing it as you head to putting on your pool’s cover. Give yourself the time to work out any water kinks that may be around in your chemistry. Our team can test your water and analyze it for you as well as offer suggestions on what needs to be down next. Add your winterizing chemicals before everything gets shut down.
Water level: Depending on your particular inground pool and winter cover, you may need to drain some of your water to help prevent freeze damage and possible overflow.
Wash debris out: In order to keep debris and unseen bacteria out of your filter, make sure you backwash and clean your filter and pump.
Take out your accessories: It is time to remove any equipment and items that need to be stored for the winter. Take a good look for any issues to have them repaired in the off-season. We offer repair services if you need help with any components of your equipment.
Close it up: When your pool is clean, the water is leveled out and all of your equipment and items are stored, it is time to put on your winter cover and officially close your inground pool for the season.
Stock up: The end of the season is also a great time to check out all of your pool toys and discard any damaged items while purchasing any new toys on sale for the next year.
Great store with everything you need for your pool. Also for your patio with their selection of the Green Egg Grills and accessories they can't be beat. Staff is always helpful, and they stock almost any part that you need for your in-ground pool.
We made the great choice to use Caribbean Pools. They are professional, knowledgeable and responsive! They really stand by their product and installation. We've been really impressed with the company. I don't usually write reviews but they are an exceptional team and I wanted others to know that we have found them to be trustworthy!

First time visiting Caribbean Pools. Great staff. Bought a hot tub on the spot. Very informative and GREAT staff. They service the hot tubs they sell...BONUS! No problems so far. Have had our NORDIC Warrior XL since August. Absolutely love our hot tub and truly blessed that we bought it from Caribbean Pools.
We had an amazingly beautiful pool installed by Caribbean Pools. We love it so much, that we got a spa from them as well. Everyone that we dealt with along the way, from customer care to the service technicians, were absolutely wonderful! With my husband working crazy hours, I never worried about dealing with something going wrong with the pool…
I recommend Caribbean Pools to anyone looking to create a backyard oasis for their family. The crew was professional, courteous & knowledgeable. They were “work horses” & perfectionists with their work. Don’t waste your time getting estimates from anyone else. Caribbean Pools is the way to go!
