Carlisle Seasonal Pool Maintenance

As the seasons change, so do the needs of your pool! While you are admiring the changing of the leaves or soaking up the last days of summer, closing your swimming pool is likely the last thing on your mind. Waiting too long to close down your pool system can lead to unexpected damage, while a late opening means missing out on warm summer days. Instead of working pool care into your calendar, call a Puddle Pro and forget about it! Calling an expert for your Carlisle seasonal pool maintenance means being able to enjoy the weather without worrying!

Closing your pool for the season means more than pulling on a winter cover until spring. In order to protect water systems from damage caused by frozen water and pave the way for an easy opening in spring, just call a Puddle Pro! Expert care prolongs the lifespan of internal components and creates sanitary swim spaces when you want to open up in spring.

Seasonal Pool Care: What to Do & When

During summer, swimming pools are high traffic spaces. When a pool is being used regularly, owners are more likely to monitor water chemistry and get rid of debris. This is great for maintaining swim spaces but when fall rolls around, maintenance becomes more complicated.

Pool Closing: When the average outdoor temperature reaches 15 degrees, it is time to consider closing your pool. Ontario is known for frigid winters, and that means frozen water. It takes long periods of prolonged exposure to freeze a pool basin, but small amounts of water in internal areas will freeze earlier. Freezing temperatures make plastic brittle and causes water to expand. Frozen water expands up to 9% and while it doesn’t sound like much, this can be enough to cause pipes to burst. In order to prevent pipes from bursting and components to be damaged, winterizing drain plugs is recommended, as well as dropping the water level and applying pool antifreeze where applicable. In the same way that dropping the water level in an in-ground pool prevents freezing, installing water bags in above ground pools does the same.

Pool Opening: After months of sitting idle, it is important to inspect every aspect of your pool before stepping foot inside it. This means visual inspections of the filtration system, pump and filter, as well as vinyl liners and pool equipment. If there is algae around your pool, there is likely algae on sensitive areas like the diving boards, which can be slippery and dangerous. Even with a pool cover installed, debris finds a way to sneak inside systems, rotting and breaking apart over time. This means cleaning out skimmer baskets and cleaning filters to ensure your water is kept as clean as possible. Test strips might be able to point out issues with basic water chemistry but after long periods of disuse, you will need more than that to create a sanitary swim space. Having water tested by an expert means proper application of pool chemicals and a balanced result.
