Bowmanville Pool Closing

No one does winter like Ontario. If you are getting ready to strap on your ice skates and bundle up for winter weather, your swimming pool is being left out in the cold. When the temperature starts to drop it is time to winterize your pool. When you call Puddle for your Bowmanville pool closing you aren’t just protecting your pool, you’re getting ready for spring and avoiding water damage all at once! 

The best way to close your pool is to have an expert do it for you! The internet is full of tips for fall pool maintenance but not all of these have Canadian winters in mind. An improper closing can result in frozen water, burst pipes and a whole lot of headaches when it comes time to open your pool back up in spring. Whether you have an inground pool or an above ground pool, all it takes is one call to a Puddle Pro to get you ready for winter. 

Fall Pool Care: What to Do & When 

Most pool owners stick to a seasonal schedule of closing a pool following the September long weekend and opening up in time for the May long weekend. This might make it easier to plan your pool parties but it isn’t necessarily the best schedule for your pool. Waiting too long to close can lead to freezing and damage but closing too early can mean missing out on the last warm days of summer. 

The best time to close your pool for the fall season is when the average outdoor temperature reaches 15 degrees. Shutting down swim spaces for the season isn’t as simple just throwing on a winter cover and hoping for the best in spring. In fact, an improper closing can lead to serious damage over the course of the winter. 

When water freezes, it expands. This isn’t a problem when you’re dealing with a lake or river but when it is inside your water lines it is a major issue. Since water expands up to 9% it can cause materials to warp and pipes to burst. This is enough to drown lawns and cause serious water damage to structures and surrounding areas. Freezing temperatures also make plastic brittle and can lead to breakage for important pool equipment, like the pool pump. 

Instead of taking a risk on damage or the need for expensive repairs, book a seasonal treatment from your local Puddle Pro. Our team of highly trained and experienced Puddle Pros have perfected our multi-step approach to seasonal care. The Puddle method protects pools over the course of fall and winter and makes it easier to open in spring. 

Puddle Pool Closing Service: Our Process 

When it is time to close your pool for the season, one call to Puddle Pool Services does it all! We start with a specialized combination of winterizing chemicals designed to prevent freezing and algae growth. Following this it is important to drop the water level and winterize drain plugs so water is not able to seep into vulnerable areas. Remove any detachable components to be dried and stored for winter and flush plumbing lines to ensure that there is no water hiding out behind the scenes.

Each member of the Puddle team is local to Bowmanville and the surrounding area so we know what your pool needs and when. When it comes to winter everything from a proper cleaning to which pool cover you use plays a role in overall condition. Local Puddle technicians do everything from standard pool cleanings, changing a pool filter and seasonal care, so you can rest easy knowing that your swim space is in good hands.
