Ingersoll Pool Opening

In an environment where winter lasts half of the year, there is no question that Ingersoll residents want to make the most out of the swim season. As much as you might want to throw back that pool cover and dive into your swimming pool, you will have to open it first. Prepping a pool for the swim season means undoing the closing process, restoring water condition, clearing debris and digging into the internal systems that keep it moving. Consulting an expert for your Ingersoll pool opening means being able to enjoy your swim space without the heavy lifting. 

When you want to open your pool for the season it might be simple to take a DIY approach to cut costs but this often doesn’t have the desired results. Anyone can pick up a pack of test strips and a bucket of shock but this isn’t enough to create a sanitary swim space for your friends, family, tenants, guests or customers. Instead of spending all of your leisure time skimming, scrubbing and water balancing, only to end up with subpar results, call Puddle for efficient and affordable spring pool care. 

Pool Opening Services: What to Expect 

When you pull back the winter cover from your pool after months of disuse there is a good chance that you are going to be dealing with water that looks more like a swamp than a swimming pool. If this is the case, it’ll take more than a few basic cleansers and a once-over with a pool vacuum to restore condition — and that is where a professional pool opening comes in! 

The first step to any pool opening is to undo your pool closing. This might seem obvious but a closing is a multi-step treatment and it is easy to miss one part of the process, which can lead to serious repercussions throughout your system. Dropping water levels and winterizing plugs, for example, are an important part of closing but they will prevent you from opening properly. Sure, you can restore the water level with a garden hose but this is just the first step in a long process. 

Managing pool equipment is key to starting the swim season off on the right foot. If any components were removed on closing for storage they will need to be replaced, winter covers will need to be changed out for mesh spring covers and in the case of an above ground pool, you will need to remove water bags. 

An opening will begin with an initial chemical shock treatment designed to clear away cloudiness and discolouration. With a clearer picture, technicians have a better idea of what is going on below the surface. Even with a cover on, debris and unwanted items have a way of finding their way inside. This means you can expect debris floating along surfaces, sunken to the bottom of the pool and filling up skimmer baskets. A basic pool vacuum isn’t enough to ditch this debris so it is important to have an expert use a manual vacuum to navigate hard to reach areas like those around stairs or in corners. In addition to cleaning out debris it is important to use a speciality brush to scrub away residue that may have formed around water lines or against liners. 

Even when debris is gone and the discolouration is dealt with, that doesn’t mean that your pool water is safe to swim in. In order to ensure that your water is clean, Puddle technicians test and balance sanitizers like chlorine or bromine, as well as pH levels, alkalinity and calcium. It doesn’t matter how many times you clean your pool, if the pump and filter aren’t working it will be contaminated again in no time. Puddle technicians will make sure that all internal water systems are functional. 

All across Ingersoll pool owners want the best results for their swim spaces and that is exactly what our team of highly trained Puddle technicians provide. With options for booking online or by phone there is never a bad time to call Puddle Pool Services to get your pool ready for summer.
