Commercial Dome Removal Instructions

Proper dome storage is essential, both in terms of the life of the dome, and its appearance when re-installed. Please take the time to review these instructions prior to removing and storing your dome. Individual situations may vary, but adhering to the following as closely as possible will enable you to store your dome properly.

Additional Helpful Notes

  1. The domes should not be put away wet. A little moisture is not a problem as getting rid of all of it is nearly impossible. Have a supply of old towels around to help wipe down and dry off the dome as you go.
  2. You may want to have a couple of leaf blowers on hand to help blow off and/or evapoate the water off of the dome where drying with a towel is not possible.
  3. If there are any scuff marks on the dome that will not "scrub" out, try cleaning them off with a shot of WD 40 and a dry cloth.
  4. Some dome owners have employed the use of a series of ropes stretched across the pool lengthwise to support the dome as they remove it. The anchors are already there to attach to.
  5. Do not drain the pool before removing the dome. The dome will need to float on the water as it is being pulled off the pool.
  6. To ensure you have enough help on hand to complete the cleaning and removal of the dome you can use this formula. One able bodied person per 800 square foot of dome  (Square footage divided by 800 = persons).
  7. After accordian folding the dome, and before completing the "double cinnamon roll" it's a GREAT idea to band the dome with a soft rope (See Pic #3 below) at approx 6' intervals. This helps to keep the dome from sliding off of itself.)
  8. If the dome needs any repairs, this is a good time to complete them.
  9. Store the dome in a dry clean environment.  The temperature should be somewhere between 20 degrees (℉) and 100 degrees (℉).
