It’s that sad time of the year that you need to start thinking about closing your swimming pool in Kelowna.  It won’t be long before the weather starts turning cold and the leaves start changing color.  Most of us don’t really like to think about closing our pool because that means the lazy days of summer fun is slowly fading away.  Still, we do need to think it and make a plan for closing our swimming pools in order to avoid unnecessary problems and repairs come next spring.


It is really important to close your swimming pool for the winter before the first frost, you need to protect your pool from the potential of freezing damage.  Don’t wait till the last minute, the cold temperatures sneak up on us fast!
