On the first days of Fall, tons of British Columbians run outside to watch the leaves change, but pool owners are dreading the days to come. A drop in temperature means that the days of pool use are numbered and it can be tough to say goodbye. Stalling a pool closing can lead to unexpected damage, so put your Ladner seasonal pool maintenance in the hands of an expert.
Closing down for winter is a sad but necessary task, while opening up for Spring is an exciting time. No matter the time of year, there is a lot of work that goes into pool prep, and that is what keeps our Puddle Pool experts busy! No matter the size or style of your pool, our team of highly trained pool pros can get your ready for next season.
A Breakdown of Seasonal Pool Care
Not all swimming pools are built in the same way. Some styles will utilize salt water while others use chemicals to sanitize fresh water. Some pools are high traffic, while others aren’t. Surrounding areas can also play a role in how you maintain your water feature. Instead of just treating the symptoms of your seasonal issues, our Puddle pros aim for the causes in order to prevent major damage.
What to Watch Out For When Closing Down: Ice might be great to skate on but it isn’t something that you want in your pool. As ice freezes and thaws, it causes contractions and expansions within your system. This can lead to cracked hardware, meaning leaks and water damage. One of the main ways to combat this, is to lower water levels before temperatures reach freezing. When draining water, it is important to do this properly to avoid drowned lawns, flooded interiors and damage to your surrounding areas.
Getting the Best Results For Your Pool Opening: The idea of taking a dip in warming weather is exciting, but the process of getting your pool ready is not. Great results mean more than pulling back a winter cover or applying a basic shock treatment is not enough to get the right results. While managing chlorine levels is key, so is examining the condition of shells, pool covers, liners and stairs. If a pool has been left stagnant for months at a time, there is a very good chance that there is bacteria. An application of carefully measured pool chemicals prevents algae growth and creates a healthy swimming environment for your guests, tenants, family and friends.
