Angus Pool Opening

When the weather begins to warm, homeowners are quick to throw back pool covers and want to put their water systems to use. The trouble is that after months of sitting idle, your pool likely looks more like a swamp than a sanitary swim space. Instead of waiting for warm weather only to spend sunny days scrubbing, skimming and balancing chemicals, plan ahead by calling a Puddle Pro for your Angus pool opening services.

When you remove the cover from swimming pools after months of sitting idle, water systems are often full of debris, water is cloudy or discoloured and you are likely dealing with bad smells and algae. If this is the case, regaining water chemistry is not as simple as throwing in a few chlorine pucks and hoping for the best. Stepping foot into contaminated water can lead to serious issues, such as recreational water illnesses. Don’t risk health and safety, or the condition of your swimming pool, when you can call a Puddle Pro for in-depth spring pool care.

How to Open Your Pool: What to Do & When

Across the Angus areas, the pool season kicks off when the average outdoor temperature reaches 21 degrees. When this is the case, there is a low likelihood of unexpected cold snaps that can cause freezing and it is also the point where heaters are able to keep up with demands without breaking the bank on utility bills. A pool opening cannot be completed in 24 hours, so it is always a good idea to plan ahead and book your service early.

Water Treatments: When you pull back a winter cover, there is a good chance that your water is going to be more green than blue and you may not even be able to see the bottom of your basin. There is no doubt that this water is contaminated, but a multi-step chemical treatment can help to get it back to sparkling clean. The pool opening process begins with an initial shock of the pool water. Over time, these treatments will begin to clear water but there is more work to be done! Sanitizers, neutralizers and balancing applications are all necessary before anyone steps foot inside your water system.

Remove Debris: Anytime you clean your pool, getting rid of debris is a key element. Anyone can skim the surface of pool water to remove floating debris but this is not the only place that you can expect to find build-up. Heavier items will sink to the bottom of pools and need to be removed from there. While it is possible to vacuum the pool with a standard automatic cleaner, these are not designed to reach into corners or around hard angles, like stairs. This means leaving large areas of bacteria behind. Speciality tools are designed to reach into these areas, removing debris from flooring, as well as removing residue from the sides and walls. It is also important to check filters and empty skimmer baskets of any debris that made its way inside over the winter.

Visual Inspections & Testing: Your swimming pool goes through a lot throughout the year. It is important to regularly inspect everything from vinyl liners to the plumbing lines, pump and filter to ensure that there hasn’t been any unexpected breakage. Making sure that all of the different components of your water systems are working properly before beginning the season saves time, energy and even money if small repairs can be done instead of full replacements.

Puddle Pool Services: Guaranteed Great Results

If you are curious about pool chemicals, testing kits can help to point out issues with sanitizer levels but often ignore the greater scope of your water condition. Having your water tested by an expert gives insight into the overall condition of your water and makes it possible to create an on-going treatment plan that caters to the unique needs of your space.
