Pool Openings & Closings




If you are not using the pool due to the coming winter or if you are going away for a long time, you need to take the necessary steps for closing your pool properly. Properly shutting down your pool will help you increase the durability of the pool’s finish, tile work and equipment, and it will cut down the time it will take to reopen the pool. If you don’t close your pool properly, the dirt and debris can cause great damage to your pool and its equipment, which will considerably increase your maintenance costs down the road.
For this reason, our experts at GEORGIA POOLS offer the best tips for you so you can shut down your pool properly and save yourself hassle down the road.



  •  Our service technicians have a 33-point pool opening checklist that allows them to ensure everything is ready to go so that you and your family can enjoy the pool safely.
  •   When the pool closes for the winter, all pool equipment is disassembled to keep it safe from weather damage. When opening, our technicians reassemble all pool equipment and will have it up and running in no time.
  •   Out technicians also perform a complete system diagnostic to ensure there are no problems with the pool and its equipment.
  •   If you have a pool heater, our technicians will test it as well.

My wife and I wanted to create a perfect place for our kids to play outdoors, and for us to entertain. Georgia Pools helped us design the perfect custom pool and patio combination. We absolutely LOVE it! Their team was very knowledgeable about the design and build process, and were very patient with us when we had any questions. It seems like their team was in and out! Now our family never leaves the back yard! Thanks Georgia Pools!

We have used one of Georgia Pools’ sister companies in the past to redesign our landscape. We decided that we were ready to incorporate a swimming pool to complete our back yard. Georgia Pools, working with their sister company, created the perfect pool design to fit right in with some of our existing hardscapes and water features. We absolutely love our back yard. Georgia Pools did an excellent job and made our backyard feel complete!

Britt helped us create the perfect pool for our back yard! They had ideas that I had never even considered. They came in, designed the project and completed it all very quickly. Their team was very professional and the construction didn’t totally disrupt our day to day activities! Shane, Britt and their team were amazing to work with. I do and will continue to recommend Georgia Pools to all of my friends and neighbors!

Hey guys.  Appreciate all the hard work and awesome transformation you were able to create for us.  Happy to help with any recommendations (not that you need them) from these 2x happy customers.  The kids love the pool and we now have an excellent place to relax and entertain under our deck.  Also appreciate the intro to Dylan who has helped us start transforming the yard.
