Langley Pool Closing

The summer season passes by in a flash. More often than not, it seems like you open a swimming pool one day and are closing it down a week later. Time flies when you’re having fun but it is important to keep up with the needs of your pool, even when the weather gets cold. When temperatures begin to drop, it is easy to overlook a swim space but failing to shut your system down over winter, or prolonged periods of disuse, can cause serious damage. Professional Langley pool closings protect swim spaces from cold weather and the damage that comes along with it.

Swimming pools are built tough in order to withstand the elements, but they aren’t invincible! Even in a place that is known for its mild winters, a cold snap can lead to frozen water. Pools might not freeze over completely but small amounts of water are at risk of cold weather. When the average outdoor temperature reaches 15 degrees, cold snaps are possible and so is damage!

The Best Way to Close Your Pool

Whether you are dealing with a swim space at home or a public swimming pool, water systems are all unique. Understanding how your swimming pool works is key to closing down properly, but that can take years of trial, error and research. Instead of spending the last days of summer learning how to close down your pool, have an expert handle it instead! In order to get the best results possible, our team of Puddle experts break fall pool care down into a multi-step approach that treats water systems from the inside, out.

Treating Water Levels: It is important to drop water levels in inground pools in order to avoid freezing. Unlike a basic bathtub, you can’t just pull the plug on a swimming pool and let water run out. Improper drainage can flood lawns, cause water damage and lead to rot. The goal of dropping water levels is to prevent water from seeping into sensitive areas, freezing and causing damage. When dealing with an above ground pool, water or air bags can be used to prevent freezing.

Water Chemistry & Treatments: Keeping up with water balance is a part of any standard pool cleaning. During summer, preventing algae and maintaining a sanitary swim space is a top priority but this becomes less of a focus when polls aren’t in use. If there is winter weather on the way, winterizing chemicals can be applied, reducing the risk of freezing.

Pool Equipment: As fall rolls around, it is a good time to install winter covers on pools and water features. During the summer, mesh covers allow sunlight to reach water and help to heat it. During fall and winter, a warm, damp, covered space is the ideal place for algae to grow. Solid covers keep sunlight out and reduces the risk of growth and discolouration. A changing of the season is also a good time to check on your pool filter. Cartridge filters can be removed, cleaned and replaced while sand filters will need to be emptied and sand replaced. Freezing temperatures can cause plastic to become brittle and water to expand. This expansion can cause pipes to burst so it is a good idea to perform visual inspections of the pool pump, return lines and more.

Travis responded promptly to me, for servising my above ground pool. He and his team came on time, did a perfect job, sent detailed report above the condition of my pool and when he found holes in my liner, I asked him to fix it and he did right the next day. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you Travis for your work ethics and excellence.
