Kelowna Residential Pool Services

Having a pool at home is a huge asset to any property. Nothing beats taking an impromptu dip or getting in some laps after a long work day and nothing screams summer fun like hosting a pool party. There are plenty of benefits to having a pool or swim spa right in your own backyard but maintenance isn’t one of them! Taking care of a swimming pool can feel like a full-time job and depending on your location, it can be. In areas of high heat, lots of plant life and high growth rates, it is a constant battle to ditch debris, eliminate algae and keep swimming pools clean. When you want to make the most out of the swim season, call a Puddle Pro for expert, affordable Kelowna residential pool services. 

Unlike a public or commercial swim space who often have a full staff dedicated to keeping pools in great condition, homeowners are often left on their own. Pool care at home means having to keep up with balancing water chemistry, removing debris, keeping internal systems running and setting up for a changing of the seasons. All of this adds up and can become overwhelming pretty fast! Instead of struggling to keep up with the needs of your swimming pool, call an experienced Puddle technician to handle the heavy lifting for you. 

Residential Pool Care: What to Know 

When you want to keep water clean, it takes more than shocking the pool every now and then and flipping the switch on a pool vacuum. Regular maintenance is key to keeping pools in good condition but each cleaning should be broken down into a multi-step approach. It is easy to get caught up focusing on water condition and forget about the filtration system, surrounding areas and surfaces that still need attention. 

Water Chemistry: Anyone can grab a water testing kit from a pool supply store but putting these to use can be tough. Basic test strips will usually help to point out problem areas with chlorine levels but they often don’t cover other chemical levels like pH levels, alkalinity and calcium. Imbalanced water chemistry will lead to cloudy or discoloured water but it is also a health and safety risk. Stepping into contaminated water can lead to recreational water illnesses (RWIs) ranging from ear and eye infections, skin irritations, all the way to digestive issues and even e-coli poisoning. 

Dealing with Debris: It is easy to skim the surface of pool water, collecting leaves, seed pods and even insects as you go. Lighter items tend to float along surfaces while heavier items sink to the bottom. Standard vacuums are not designed to reach into corners, navigate hard angles or navigate stairs. This means seams and corners are at risk of buildup, bacteria, discolouration and algae. Getting rid of unwanted items means skimming, vacuuming, emptying skimmer baskets and hard scrubbing of residue means speciality tools and a lot of technique, so it is best left to the experts.

Monitoring Pool Equipment: Part of what makes pool care so complicated is maintaining the systems and parts that keep it going, If a pool pump stops working, water stops circulating and so do chemicals. Stagnant water is prone to algae growth and bacteria buildup. The pool filter in your system helps to keep water clean so it should always be in tip-top shape. No matter the type of pool filter that you are dealing with, they should be regularly inspected, cleaned or replaced regularly. A cartridge filter can be removed, cleaned and replaced, usually every 3-4 months. In the case of a sand filter, they should be emptied and replaced with new sand every several years. 

Seasonal Pool Care: Just when you think you have a handle on your swimming pool care, the seasons change and you have to start from scratch. Over the winter season outdoor pools are at risk of damage caused by freezing. Failing to close pools properly in fall also means having a more difficult time opening up in spring. When winter weather gives way to warmer temperatures, you will have to do more than pull back a pool cover and hop on in. Multi-step openings are key to restoring water condition, making it sanitary for use so you can make the most out of the warm weather. 

From above ground pools to inground models, there is nothing that our team of experts can’t handle! 

Puddle Pool Services: Expert Pool Care Right to Your Front Door 

Each member of the Puddle team is local to the Kelowna area, so we know exactly what your swimming pool is up against. The needs of a swimming pool will change throughout the year, so pool programs will need to be adjusted based on outdoor temperatures, rate of use and surrounding areas. High heats will burn chemicals off faster so the program that you use in spring will not be enough to keep water clean at the height of summer or the start of the fall season. Instead of struggling to develop a cleaning program that works, over and over again, let an expert handle it for you! 

Highly trained and experienced technicians are able to create custom treatment plans according to the unique needs of your swim space. By offering affordable rates and a wide range of service options, Puddle technicians can handle indoor and outdoor pools on a regular basis, as well as service calls, seasonal treatments, inspections and leak detection to keep swim spaces in great shape all year long.
