Lambton Shores Pool Opening

After a long winter there is nothing better than sitting poolside and soaking up the first days of summer sun. As great as this sounds, it doesn’t come with a lot of hard work. During the off-season swimming pools are sitting stagnant and this means contaminated water and months worth of debris when you try to open up in spring. Lambton Shores pool opening services restore swim spaces so you can make the most out of the swim season. 

Spring Pool Care: What to Do & When 

All pool owners have a different idea of when the ideal time to open a pool is. For some it is the first warm day of spring, while others prefer the May long weekend or even wait until June. The truth is that there is no exact date to open your pool but there is a temperature. When the average outdoor temperature reaches 21 degrees it is safe to open your swim space for the season. 

Restoring Water Condition: After months of sitting idle pool water is likely looking pretty swampy. You might pull back your pool cover to find green water, foul smells and a whole lot of debris. Stepping foot into contaminated can result in recreational water illnesses like skin irritations, eye infections and even e-coli poisoning so restoring water condition is a top priority when opening. An initial shock treatment might be a good start but that is only step one. After an initial treatment (or two depending how the level of contamination) it is then time to balance chlorine levels, pH levels, alkalinity and calcium. 

Ditch Debris: Even with a winter cover on, unwanted items have a way of making their way inside of pool systems. Lighter items will float along pool surfaces, heavier ones will sink to the bottom of the pool and skimmer baskets will collect a range of unwanted items great and small. Giving your pool a clean bill of health means removing debris from each of these areas using specialty tools like manual vacuums and brushes that are designed to remove residue from water lines without causing damage. 

Inspecting Pool Equipment: Cold temperatures make plastic brittle and can cause cracks, warping or worse to internal water systems. Before firing up your systems for use it is important to make sure that your water levels are staying consistent, return lines are in good shape and equipment like the pump, filter and heaters are working properly. In the same way that a winter cover can help to keep debris out and prevent algae, swapping solid covers out for mesh ones can help to heat pool water, cutting down on utility costs. Puddle technicians offer tips on the best cover for your space as well as for storing your pool cover.
