Recurring Pool Service Through the Winter

Don’t want to go through the hassle of closing your pool? We have good news, you don’t have to! There are many benefits to maintaining your pool throughout the winter months, including avoiding potential complications when it’s time to open your pool, having the view of a beautifully clean pool during the dreary cold months, and getting your pool swim-ready much more quickly at the start of the following swim season. You can learn the full list of benefits to keeping your pool open all year here.

If you’re not sure whether to close your pool or maintain it through the winter months, call Pool Scouts at 614-559-8627. We have the background knowledge to know whether your pool will be better off getting closed or regularly maintained so that either way, when warmer weather arrives, your pool will be swim ready.
