Abbotsford Pool Closing

Following hot summer weather, Abbotsford residents are busy enjoying fall festivals and watching the leaves change colour. While you are busy soaking up the last days of nice weather before winter settles in, swimming pools often take a backseat. If temperatures drop below freezing, it can cause water to freeze inside lines and other sensitive areas. If you want to protect your pool and pave the way for an easier opening in spring, call an expert for your Abbotsford pool closing.

Prepping your pool for the winter is a complicated process, with multiple steps each of which are designed to protect a different part of your water system. Taking an amateur approach to water balancing can lead to skin irritations or infections, while improper draining techniques can lead to drowned lawns and flooded structures. Instead of dealing with subpar results or unexpected damage, call a pro to set your water system up for success.

Fall Pool Care: The Best Way to Close Your Pool

Learning the best way to close down a pool system can mean years of trial and error, as well as purchasing and storing specialized tools and chemicals. If you want to keep your free time free, or don’t want to fill sheds with pool supplies, call a Puddle technician today. Local technicians are outfitted with the right tools and techniques to get great results for pools of all shapes and sizes, all across the Abbotsford area.

Ditch Debris: Debris is always a concern for pool owners, particularly in outdoor models. Lighter items float along water surfaces, clogging up skimmer baskets and filters. Heavier materials sink to the bottom of the pool and rest against liners, eventually leading to stains. If debris is left inside pool water over long periods, it will rot and break apart, creating clogs and putting strain on your system.

Dropping Water Levels: British Columbia is known for its mild winters, but that doesn’t mean that water can’t freeze. It takes prolonged exposure to freezing temperatures for large amounts of water (like a pool basin) to freeze over but smaller amounts of water can freeze much quicker. This means small amounts of water sitting in return lines will freeze, cause plastic to become brittle and pipes to expand. Frozen water expands up to 9%, putting strain on pipes, and leading to potential bursting. If pipes burst pool owners will be dealing with the need for extensive repairs and the need for costly replacements.

Treating Pool Equipment: Winterizing drain plugs is a great way to prevent water from seeping into vulnerable areas. In addition to keeping water out, it is important to keep sunlight out by installing winter covers. Mesh covers are great for spring and summer because they allow sunlight in, helping to warm water. In the winter, if sunlight is allowed in, it will create an ideal space for algae to thrive. During openings and closings, it is always a good idea to check plumbing lines, pool pumps, as well as cartridge filters and sand filters.
