Another summer is coming to an end. It is now time to start planning for the fall closing of your pool. We, at American Pool Supply, are accepting closing and winterizing appointments. Our calendar is filling up very quickly this year so be sure to call and book a closing date today!
Remember, if we have an extended summer you can always call and move your date back. If you book a date and would like to be moved up we will do our best to accommodate you. Let our staff know what week you would like and we will do our best to fit you in. If you choose to close your own pool, stop into one of our stores for FREE written instructions on how to close your pool. We are fully stocked with all your winterizing supplies. Our friendly staff is ready to help answer all of your closing questions. There are a few steps we highly recommend to ensure a crystal clear pool in the spring. Make sure before you close your pool you start with having a FREE computerized water analysis. We are most concerned about the balance of the pH and Alkalinity, which are very important to make sure that all of the winter chemicals work properly and thoroughly. We carry only the best chemical winterizing kits available. Even mesh covered pools stay clear and blue with our kits. American Pool is dedicated to providing you with the best winterizing products and information available.
I would like to encourage you to bring in your pool pump for a winter check. Many of them were brought in this season in extremely rough shape and customers ended up buying new pumps when they could have gotten a few more years out of them. This could be avoided by a yearly winter check to change the seal, bearings, and to clean the debris collecting inside the motor that causes internal damage. I have seen everything from bee nests, snakes, grass, and leaves plugged up inside a motor. Your motor has a fan to suck cool air through to keep it from overheating, but when it gets plugged it will cause the motor to stop running or burn up. You should have preventative maintenance done every fall to ensure the maximum life of your pump. If we do it in the winter you should get through the season with little to no problems.
We would like to thank you for your patronage during the summer 2014 season.
It has been a pleasure to serve you.
Dave Kords, President
