Forum Title: How late do you close in New England?
Was just wondering how late others close in the New England area. This is only my second closing with the new pool. At some point I might take over the closing myself, However where the pool is only 1 year old and has a In floor cleaning system I am having the PB do the closings for now. We want to keep it open as late as possible and open as soon as possible so we can enjoy the view and the waterfall. Last year we closed first week of November without any freezing issues so I scheduled the same for this year. Not sure how risky this is if we get a early cold snap. If I leave the waterfall valve 1/4 open this will ensure all the plumbing will have a steady flow so I can just leave it running as long as Temps are below freezing. We are getting a whole house generator but it probably will not be running for a few weeks. The motor/ control Does have freeze protection but I am not %100 sure how it works. In the settings I can set the rpm's and a run time. I can not set the temp limits. It seems to come on at 38 deg but I have no idea what temp it shuts off at. So for now I have the run time set to 8 hrs at 2000 rpm. Just looking for some info how others handle late closings and what precautions they take for freeze protections Thanks, Rich..

You are fine with closing the pool the first week of November. It takes quite a long time for water to freeze underground to cause any type of damage. I have friends in the business who close pools all the way until the end of November. Last year, we closed my friends pool at the end of November due to a liner change (no problems with freezing). In floor cleaning system I am having the PB do the closings Click to expand... If this is a Paramount System, make sure the PB uses the proprietary plugs to close the module. This area has to be worked on separately.

Look at Post # 17 as well. Safety cover and water levels

Our pool is being closed on Wednesday. The water temp is 50. I would have preferred two weeks ago to avoid the elecric cost of running it and the pain of fishing out all the leaves, but I was late calling for an appt.
