London Residential Pool Services

For property owners, having an accessible swim space means being able to make the most out of the swim season. A pool is a great selling feature for a home and it can help to attract tenants and rental properties — but only if they are clean! Unlike a public pool or commercial swim space, homeowners are often left to manage cleaning and maintenance on their own — but Puddle is here to help! London residential pool services help you keep up with high traffic, changing seasons and other factors to keep water clean and systems running smoothly. 

Pool maintenance is not one-size-fits-all. Keeping a swimming pool in great shape means creating customized treatment plans that cater to the unique needs of your water system. An indoor pool, for example, will often have different needs than an outdoor pool. From balancing water chemistry, removing debris and making sure that water systems are working properly, it can all feel a little overwhelming but our team of local pool pros are here to help. 

Residential Pool Care: What to Do & When 

The needs of your swimming pool will change throughout the year. Everything from a changing of the seasons, heavy rains, high heats and even the level of traffic passing through your swimming pool while have an impact on its overall chemistry and condition. Shocking the pool can help to clear away cloudy water but it isn’t enough to create a sanitary place to swim in. 

There are plenty of types of pools throughout London ranging from indoor pools, outdoor models, inground designs and above ground pools, all of which need special attention. Instead of struggling to keep up with the needs of your water systems, have an expert handle it instead. 

Routine Pool Cleanings: At the height of summer, swimming pools are often very high traffic areas. At this point, keeping a pool clean means weekly cleanings. By cleaning and balancing pools on a weekly basis, you restrict the risk of algae growth and bacteria, as well as removing debris in order to keep internal systems running smoothly. Keeping your pool cleaner not only helps to improve curb appeal and add home value, they can help to improve functionality. When your pool filter is clean and skimmer baskets are empty, pool water is able to flow freely. Clogs, blockages and large amounts of debris mean water has to struggle to pass through, requiring more energy and driving up daily operating costs. 

Seasonal Pool Care: The needs of your pool will change throughout the year but it is important to pay special attention when the seasons change. Ontario is known for frigid winters  and these will take a toll on pool systems. Preparing your pool for the winter protects it from unexpected damage and reduces the risk of serious damage to plumbing and surrounding areas. After a long winter, homeowners want to open up their pools to enjoy the warm weather in spring and summer. This means needing proper pool closures and openings, which each require speciality chemical treatments, system testing, removal and cleaning of internal water systems and a whole lot of debris removal. 

When you want the best results for your swimming pool, ditch the DIY approach and have an expert handle the heavy lifting for you. 

Pool Care At Home: The Benefits of Professional Care 

From the outside, swimming pools seem pretty simple — but they are anything but! Anyone can visit a pool supply store for simple test strips but keeping a pool in great shape requires a lot more than just that. 

Expertise & Training: It can take months or years to figure out what makes your swimming pool work and this means a long period of trial and error. Over this period your pool is likely experiencing a lot of unnecessary wear and tear. Each member of the Puddle team is local to the London area and have plenty of industry experience and training. This means avoiding the trial and error in favour of more efficient treatments. For example, an amateur approach to opening a pool can take two weeks of chemical applications and cleanings before water is actually balanced. During this time you are spending a lot of time and money on supplies when you could call a Puddle technician instead for a quicker and more cost effective pool treatment. 

Top Industry Tools: It is easy enough to skim floating debris off of water surfaces but dealing with sunken items is a lot harder. You can’t just flip the switch on an automatic cleaner and expect a perfectly cleaned pool. Standard pool vacuums are not designed to reach into corners or the hard angles around stairs. This means there are often unwanted items left behind in these areas and bacteria and algae can grow. Pool specialists are equipped with top industry tools designed to navigate even the hardest to reach areas for a complete clean with every service. Specially designed brushes can remove residue from sides without causing weakening or tears to liners. 

Monitoring Filtration Systems: If there is no water circulating in your pool it won’t take long for it to become contaminated. Keeping a pool clean means balancing chlorine levels, pH levels, alkalinity and monitoring water levels but is also means having to clean the filter. The most common types of pool filters in use throughout London are cartridge filters and sand filters. Cartridge filters should be removed, cleaned and replaced every 3 months and a sand filter should be emptied and refilled with new sand every 3-5 years. 

Access to Local Resources: In the event that you need pool repairs or replacements it can be overwhelming to choose the right company. Puddle Pool Services operate on a cleaning only basis but have a wide roster of local repair services that are reputable, efficient and affordable. 

Ditch the basic testing kits and call Puddle for expert results, excellent customer service and the peace of mind that comes along with fully insured pool services. Make the most out of the swim season by calling a Puddle Pro for your opening and keep water clear and flowing smoothly throughout the spring and summer.
