We pay $250 but we clean the pool and balance the water. They do the rest (lowering water level, blowing out the lines, antifreeze and winterizing the equipment, and they do put the cover on as well). I think most places charge around $350 or so. I would find out exactly what they do before you hire them.

Agreed - watch carefully, ask questions and take notes (pictures even). For me, the most difficult part of closing is installing the cover. (Similarly, the worst part of opening in the spring is removing the cover - even more labor-intensive and time-consuming than installing upon closing, since it's necessary to clean and dry the cover, then carefully fold before storing).

Today, I am looking into trying to close it myself. I'm a little nervous about making sure the lines are all blown out. I also unsure as to whether or not I should lower the water. Some experts tell you not to, to keep strain and force off the cover.
