Pool Closing Cost

Pool Closing Cost

When closing a pool, there are a few costs to consider. One of the significant costs of closing a pool is the labor costs.

Labor costs include many different processes:

  • Cover installation
  • Skimmers
  • Diving boards
  • Ladder Removal
  • Equipment lubrication
  • Clearing the plumbing

Overall, you will pay anywhere from $200 to $250 for a standard inground pool closing.

Some additional costs you might need to consider for an inground swimming pool closing include:

  • Hot Tub Winterization – $100
  • Waterfall or Water Feature Winterization – $50
  • Lowered Water – $50

For standard inground swimming pool winterization, you will need to spend around $250 on average, including the cost of chemicals.

Beyond pool closing, you will also need to keep in mind the costs of opening your pool. On average, most homeowners can expect to spend anywhere between $100 and $400.

The maximum reported cost for winterizing a swimming pool was $700, while the national average reported cost was $232.

PRO TIP: Make sure that the pH level in your swimming pool is somewhere between 7.2 and 7.6 before closing it for the winter months.
