If you have a pool on your property, you must be aware that you need to close your pool before the winter season sets in and then open it at the onset of spring. There are very specific things that need to be done during the pool opening and closing processes in order to ensure that the equipment stays in the good condition through the winter and becomes usable in spring.
While some homeowners handle the pool opening and closing themselves the task can be laborious and time-consuming and it's best to hire experts like us for this job. We at Dell Pools are a leading full-service landscape, pool & spa design company based in Hawthorne, New Jersey. We cater to customers from the surrounding areas.
After many months of cold weather, when it starts to warm up, you want to get your pool ready for the swimming season. The different aspects included in our residential pool opening services are:
Removal of the cover and storing in the location indicated by you
For pools that have safety covers- lower the safety cover lugs
Empty & store the water bags (for pools with solid covers)
Remove the winterization plugs
Perform a visual inspection of the pool area & equipment
Test the water chemistry
Start and test the filtration system
Add all the initial chemicals (Algaecide, Chlorine, D.E, etc.)
Test the heater (in case it's applicable)
Install all the pool accessories (Diving board, ladder, handrail, cleaner, etc.)
Once the cold weather starts settling in, you need to winterize the pool and close it until spring. The different aspects included in our residential pool closing services are:
Shut down & winterize complete pool filtration system
Remove the debris from the pool
Visual Inspection of pool area & equipment
Remove as well as store all the pool accessories (Diving board, ladder, handrail, cleaner, etc.)
Add the pool winterization chemicals (Winterizing algaecide and chlorine boost )
Install the winter cover
Raise lugs for the safety covers
Fill water bags in case of solid covers
If you have mesh covers, all the water will be drained by around 18”. But it’s important that the water level is just below the skimmer and tiling during the winter months. If required we can send our technician a few times during the winter months to add some more algaecides and scale inhibitors.

It is/was the best decision we have ever made regarding home improvements on any level. From the planning, approvals, construction, and clean up went exactly how it was supposed to go. No surprises, no hidden costs, no disappearing acts, and perfect execution for the entire project.
Several times over the project, a team member would pull us out side to recommend how something should look or how it could be improved. Not only did this help the vision of the project but most of the times it actually cut costs. What contractor would try to cut costs?!? These guys really look out for the home owner. Whenever the next project comes along I now have only one phone call to make and that is to the team at Dell. My family cannot thank you all for creating this amazing paradise for us.
Dell build me a backyard that is so nice I never want to go anywhere else! The pool and landscaping they designed for us is amazing. The entire staff, from Anthony to the team installing the pool and pavers, were wonderful to work with and extremely professional.
We had Dell install our pool and it turned out better than we thought it would. Anthony laid out his plan for us in the first consultation, gave us a price that included everything so there were no surprises. His workers are highly skilled and genuinely nice people. I highly recommend this company.
They were great - very responsive over phone, undertook a complex spa installation within few days while the owner was not present at home. Would highly recommend!
I have always used Dell Landscaping for my pool or landscaping needs. Most recently I had Dell landscape a small courtyard at my townhouse in Mahwah, the job came out amazing, all my neighbors pass by and cannot believe what a beautiful detailed job was done in this little space.
Respectful and dedicated workers. Although the job ended up costing more than I was quoted It was worth the "extras" and the extra money I paid for the pool. Would definitely recommend this company and their workmanship.
