Diving boards, slides, & pool lights on all in ground pools will remain in place. Heaters on all above ground pools will remain in place. Winter home owners choosing a modified closing are responsible for draining the water 1" below the returns. In the event that water is not drained, there will be an additional charge between $100 and $150 depending on pool size and water level.
All pools should remain operational until the day the pool is closed. Even though you may not be using the pool, it is imperative to keep the pool water circulating and chemically treated until closing. Bringing a water sample in to the store 1 week prior to closing is recommended, in order to balance chemicals and ensure a successful closing. We will be happy to assist you in preparing the pool for the winter season. Unfortunately, EPS cannot accept responsibility for the condition of the pool water at the time of closing, pools in poor condition will usually open the following spring in equally poor condition. We recommend closing the pool only after the water is clear, clean , and balanced. Winterization services do not include clearing or cleaning the pool . We can provide these services at an additional cost prior to the closing. Please contact the office for assistance, if you have any questions.
While we try to ensure that all winter covers are tightly secured for winter there are still times that a cover may come unsecured . Due to the nature of our weather, covers are exposed to prolonged cold, rain, and ice. These can damage the cover and cables or cause the cover to blow off or fall in. EPS cannot be responsible for your winter cover. We will attempt to secure your cover as best we can for the winter season. We cannot secure items to the pool cover or remove decking, or attach the cover in any unconventional manner. Should you need assistance over the winter with a cover that has fallen in or needs to be replaced we can assist you with that at an additional fee. Inground Automatic pool covers require the pool owner to fill the water level back to the manufacturer recommended level after closing.

It is the responsibility of the homeowner/property owner to ensure the safety of the pool throughout the winter.
