Dundas Pool Opening

Winters in Ontario are tough, cold and feel like they go on forever. The second that the weather starts to warm, pool owners want to fire up their water systems and enjoy the sunshine. The only problem? If pool water has been sitting stagnant for months, it will likely be heavily contaminated, probably green and will more often than not, smell terrible. If your swim space is looking worse for the wear, stay out of it and call a Puddle Pro instead! Professional Dundas pool opening services create safe and sanitary swim spaces, free of debris and running smoothly.

Spring Pool Care: Creating a Schedule That Works

More often than not, pool owners plan pool closings for the September long weekend and reopen them again for the May long weekend. Opening too early means risking damage caused by unexpected cold fronts, while waiting too long can mean missing out on the first days of the swim season. While this will often work out well enough, you can open your pool as soon as the average outdoor temperature reaches 21 degrees. At this point, cold snaps are over and pool owners are ready to dive on in.

After sitting still during the cold season you can’t just clean your pool and start the season. Restoring water condition and cleaning away debris can’t be done in 24 hours but requires a multi-step approach that tackles swimming pools from top and bottom and inside out.

Step 1: Pull back solid winter covers to get a full view of water condition. Chances are that water levels were dropped during closings and will need to be restored with a garden hose. Winterizing plugs is common practice so it is key to open them back up to make sure that water can flow freely. From here, ensure that any components that were removed on closing are reinstalled and functional. Once sure that everything is working properly, applying a shock treatment will help to clear away cloudiness or discolouration.

Step 2: Even with a cover, debris will find its way inside water systems, clogging up skimmer baskets, sinking to the bottom of the pool and floating along water surfaces. There isn’t much point in balancing your pool water if there are still contaminants floating around. Once physical debris is gone, heavy scrubbing removes sitting residue from walls, stairs and flooring.

Step 3: Following scrubbing, debris removal and initial chemical applications, our technicians will come back to perform a final balancing. During this last visit technicians will look over pool equipment in the surrounding area, ranging from diving boards to safety rails.

The Puddle Guarantee: Seasonal Pool Maintenance Made Easy

A test kit might be enough to help balance water chemistry during the swim season but these basic tools are not enough to restore pool water to its former glory.
