HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Aug. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Even though no one wants to even ponder the thought of closing their sparkling blue pool yet, any property, commercial or residential, should be thinking about the process well in advance of closing day. Closing a pool for the winter months is essential to maintaining a healthy, safe swimming environment, so you want to ensure that you close it properly before the weather can wreak havoc on your pool system. One way to make sure that your pool is in good condition prior to closing is having it inspected by a professional. Here, inground pool cover company, LOOP-LOC, shares 5 reasons to have your pool inspected before having it closed.

  1. Pool safety: A major reason to have any pool inspected is the overall safety of the swimming area and pool itself. Ensuring there are no broken deck pieces or jagged stones that could harm a person near the pool is essential, along with placing proper signage and warnings for any commercial pool. Making sure there are handrails, depth signs, and drains are important for the overall safety of all swimmers. A thorough inspection will make sure your pool and surrounding area are safe for activity, so you can rest knowing that your children are safe around the pool.
  2. Check for proper water chemistry: An inspector will take a detailed water chemistry report to make sure your pool is fit for use. Testing the chlorine, alkalinity, P.H., calcium, cyanuric and phosphorous levels is important to your pool's maintenance, and even if you properly maintain your levels, accidents and human error may throw something off. Checking for any algae or bacteria gives you confidence that your pool is clean and ready to close up for the season without worry.
  3. Evaluate equipment condition: Pool equipment, like anything else, can wear down over time. Testing and overseeing your pool's filtration system, heater, and other mechanics for any wear or damage is essential to making sure your pool is functioning properly. Taking note of any potentially serious damages at early stages allows you to prevent further damage later, so take advantage of this inspection as an opportunity to assess your pool's overall state and potentially reach out for repairs before closing.
  4. Assess value: Whether you're a homeowner who is looking to sell their home or a business assessing property value, knowing how much your pool is worth can be beneficial. An inspector will be able to assess the value of your pool and give you an estimate of its worth in a sale or official document. Having this information on hand can only be good for you and your pool.
  5. Meet any federal, state and local regulations: Specifically, for commercial pools, meeting legal regulations and ensuring CDC compliance are important to maintaining an up and running pool. To avoid any problem in the first place, make sure you get the pool inspected frequently. An inspection before closing is especially important, as it will be what you first open up to in late spring. Knowing what to expect and what you have to do for maintenance is key to keeping your pool running and open. Don't let the laws get in the way of running your pool; compliance is a lot easier than a shutdown.
