Cambridge Seasonal Pool Maintenance

In Ontario, enjoying an outdoor pool is restricted to the spring and summer seasons. This means pool owners want to make the most out of the swim season but also need to protect swim spaces from the cold winter months. An improper closing can lead to serious and widespread damage throughout your property, so leave the Cambridge seasonal pool maintenance to a local Puddle Pro. 

Seasonal pool care is not as simple as throwing on a pool cover for the fall season or shocking the pool water in spring. In order to get the best results, it is important to break the process down into multiple-steps that address your swim space inside and out. 

Fall & Spring Pool Care: How to Get the Best Results 

The internet is full of tips for fall pool maintenance but some of these can do more harm than good. When properly applied winter pool chemicals can help to prevent freezing as well as contaminants and algae growth. Instead of dealing with the aftermath of an amateur approach, let an expert get the best results the first time around. 

Fall Pool Care: The best way to start a pool closing is with a clean slate. This means a full cleaning of your swim space and then the fun can begin! The biggest risk facing a swimming pool is freezing, not only in the basin itself but in the internal water systems that are hard at work behind the scenes. Small amounts of water will freeze quickly and this includes any water that is sitting inside return and plumbing lines. When frozen, water expands up to 9% and that is enough to cause pipes to burst. By reducing the water level so it falls below the skimmer line and winterizing drain plugs, Puddle technicians are able to avoid a worst-case scenario.  

Spring Pool Care: When warm weather comes back around pool owners are keen to jump inside but it isn’t as easy as all that. When you pull back a pool cover after months of sitting idle you are likely going to see cloudy water, algae, and a whole lot of leaves and debris. Getting rid of all the debris and unwanted items is key to restoring condition to being clean and usable. If there were any detachable components that should be reinstalled and water level raised so it reaches skimmer lines. Then it is time for initial shock treatments and specialized chemical treatments that clear away cloudiness and discolouration. Once all chemicals have settled in and basins are clean it is time for a final water treatment, balancing chlorine levels, pH levels, total alkalinity and calcium. 

With the kick-off of any new season it is a good idea to check up on pool equipment and the pool filter itself. Ditch the basic test kits and get the best results with a bit of help of local Puddle Pool Services.
