Kanata Seasonal Pool Maintenance

Every season has its own unique charm but it is tough to top swim season. When the weather is warm, a swimming pool is a great way to get some exercise, host a party and even add value to a property. It is easy to enjoy a pool in summer, but when fall rolls around, caring for a swim space can feel like a chore. Don’t waste a minute of summer struggling to open a pool, or deal with unnecessary damage due to a delayed opening, when you can call a Puddle Pro instead. Professional Kanata seasonal pool maintenance is efficient, thorough and helps to protect your water system.

Pool maintenance is not only about improved visuals. Routine pool care can prolong the lifespan of your liners, internal components and even help to reduce utility bills. Unlike a basic bathtub, a pool system is made up of multiple moving parts, each of which needs to be running at full capacity. A change of seasons is the ideal time to treat your water, inspect your circulation system and review surrounding areas, as well as pool equipment. Let an expert do the heavy lifting for you, so you can kick back and enjoy your pool.

Seasonal Pool Care: What to Do and When

From season to season, the needs of pools, hot tubs and swim spas will vary. Throughout the spring and summer months, routine chemical applications prevent algae growth and help to maintain chemical balance, keeping swimmers safe. Regular cleanings are key to maintaining a sanitary swim space but when you want to protect your pool, there are additional tasks that need to be done.

Pool Closing: Closing down your pool system means getting it ready for a long period of disuse and preparing for freezing temperatures. In addition to standard pool chemicals, protecting your water system means the addition of speciality chemicals like pool antifreeze or algaecides. Treating water is a good start, but it is also important to reduce the water level so it falls below jets and skimmers, and winterizing drain plugs. This step prevents water from seeping in and freezing. Frozen water makes plastic brittle and can lead to expansion. Frozen water expands up to 9%, which can cause warping or worse, burst pipes. A mesh pool cover might be great in summer but when it starts to get cold, these models can create the ideal space for algae to thrive. Winter covers are solid, which helps to protect your pool water from invasive growth. Blowing out plumbing lines can also help to prevent freezing and detachable components should be dried and stored to avoid damage.

Pool Opening: When opening up your pool, filtration systems need a lot of attention. Floating debris has likely clogged up skimmer baskets and is putting strain on your pool filter. Sand filters are outfitted with pressure gauges that show when they need to be replaced. Replacing sand can be a complicated process that requires heavy lifting, while changing out a cartridge filters is a more simple process. Inground pools will have a reduced water level following the winter, and above ground pool models will likely have had water bags installed to prevent freezing. Pool surfaces should be thoroughly scrubbed and vacuumed in order to remove debris and residue.
