Markham Pool Opening

Winters might be fun for a while but after months of cold weather, everyone is waiting for spring and nothing says spring like a pool party. After months of sitting stagnant swimming pools often look more like swamps than inviting places to take a dip. Contaminated water isn’t just ugly, it is downright dangerous. Instead of spending the first days of spring dealing with debris or struggling to balance water call Puddle for your Markham pool opening. 

When you want to open your pool, it takes more than pulling back the pool cover and diving on in. In fact, after months of sitting stagnant your pool water is likely cloudy, green, full of debris and smells awful. Unlike a standard pool cleaning service, opening up in spring requires a heavy duty cleaning and missing just one step in this process can have a ripple effect throughout your entire water system. Instead of dealing with a DIY disaster, call Puddle for your spring pool care.

Your Pool Opening Service: Getting to Know the Process 

Getting pools ready for the swimming season means creating a multi-step approach that caters to the visible areas as well as the internal systems that keep water flowing. Applying a shock treatment is a great start to an opening but it won’t do you much good if you are dealing with a damaged pool pump. Luckily, our Puddle Pros are able to restore both inground and above ground pools back to great condition. 

Undo Your Closings: The first step to getting ready for spring is to undo everything that was done in fall. This means reinstalling any components that were removed for storage during the off-season. Winterizing plugs is common practice on closing so it is important to open these back up and refill the pool so the water level reaches the skimmer. 

Deep Clean Your Pool: Once all closing practices have been reversed and an initial shock treatment is applied, it is time to remove debris. Even with a winter cover on debris has a way of sneaking inside pool basins. Heavier items will sink to the bottom of the pool where they will need to be vacuumed up, floating items need to be scooped out, skimmer baskets should be emptied and any residue should be scrubbed from walls and stairs. 

Specialized Chemical Treatments: In addition to initial shock treatments your pool depends on a carefully curated mix of chemicals designed to tackle even the toughest bacteria and contaminants. Simple testing kits aren’t built for these deep cleans so it is best to consult an expert instead of relying on these basic tools. It will often take multiple chemical treatments applied over a period of 2-4 days to perform a preliminary cleaning. Once initial chemical treatments have settled in it is time for final balancing in which experts test and balance sanitizer levels, along with pH levels, total alkalinity and calcium. 

Check Pool Equipment: Puddle technicians will perform visual inspections of equipment and components like return lines and liners to ensure that your system is running smoothly. Our experts also offer up helpful tips and tricks on storing your pool cover and replacing solid winter covers with mesh ones to help with heating and reduce daily running costs.
