Just got a quote from the pool service department to close our pool. $230 for the labor and about $467 in antifreeze costs. They say they use 85 gallons at $5.50/gallon. Does anyone who does not close themselves pay these high costs? I called the company and questioned that much antifreeze and she said they definitely use that amount with the 6 returns and in-floor cleaning system. Seems crazy. They do have another package option where they then charge $335 to close the pool and only blow the lines and add 5-10 gallons of antifreeze. However this option comes with no guarantees at all, whereas the other one is 100% guaranteed if there is a freeze problem. For $200 I suppose the guarantee might be worth it. Ouch that is a lot of money!
