Winterizing your swimming pool correctly is extremely important and should be done by a professional. The pools’ piping and filter system need to be blown out and/or drained properly in order to avoid any damage from freezing. As part of the process, any equipment such as pumps, diving boards, ladders etc. are removed and stowed. A heater, while turned off, is sprayed with WD40 to help preserve its’ life and repel rodents or insects, then covered to help keep the snow out of it. The process includes lowering the pool water to a safe level to prevent any ice damage, adding chemicals to help preserve the water for next season, and leaving the pool clean to help prevent any possible staining. Finally, the anchors for the Winter cover need to be “popped up” and the cover installed. Contact us with any questions you may have since the process will vary from pool to pool.
I was having a party for my daughter and my grandchild and needed the pool open and swimmable. I left multiple messages over 2 and a half weeks for the pool company who serviced our pool in Pound Ridge, N.Y. in the past and they never called back. I called Rick Pinto Swimming Pools mistakenly as I thought they were the company I had been calling and left them a message late one night which was now three days before my party. Rick Pinto Swimming Pools returned my call and first informed me that that they were in fact not the company that I had been calling. They did inform me that if I was not able to get in touch with the other company that I could call back and they would see if they could help me with my pool. I decided then and there that I was going to use Rick Pinto Swimming Pools and it worked out better then I could have imagined. Rick Pinto Swimming Pools coordinated the entire effort from the water trucks needed to fill my pool to having my pool chemically treated and ready for the party. It was a pleasure working with Rick and his team and I would recommend Rick Pinto Swimming Pools to anyone looking for a professional swimming pool service and maintenance company.
Dear Lenny and Rick, Thank you for your wonderful service this year. Luis kept my pool in wonderful condition all summer and Ivan and Kevin just finished closing the pool. They were very professional and did their job quickly with proficiency and great care. Ivan was very observant and corrected a problem with the anchors that I was unaware of by simply and efficiently drilling two missing holes. I could not have found more professional and proficient service then you provided. I look forward to May and the opening of my pool in the same manner in which you have provided so well.
