Markham Residential Pool Services

A clean and inviting swimming pool can help homeowners make the most out of the summer season, create selling features for potential buyers and encourage renters to your love your listing. There are a ton of benefits to having an accessible swim space on your property but keeping them clean is easier said than done. Whether you are managing a high traffic space or are looking after a seldom-used swim space, safe and sanitary pool water should always be a top priority but it is tough to keep up with! Markham residential pool services mean crystal clear water, smooth running systems and peace of mind so you can enjoy the swim season to the fullest. 

From afar pool care might seem like a simple process: flip the switch on a pool vacuum, skim out unwanted items and throw in a few chlorine pucks every now and then — if only this were the case! Maintaining a sanitary swim space requires a multi-step approach, done consistently. Swimming pools can be demanding but our Puddle technicians speak their language. If you are struggling to keep up with a demanding water system, are new to pool care or are just tired of spending your free time scrubbing, skimming and water balancing, leave the heavy lifting to an expert. 

The Best Way to Keep Your Pool Clean: A Multi-Step Approach 

Pool maintenance is not only about water condition but it is easy to get caught up with chemical treatments. Achieving proper water balance involves more than just a basic testing kit, in fact it involves looking past the water itself and considers the swim space as a whole. Keeping your pool cleaner means addressing water chemistry, the internal systems that keep pool water flowing, structures, equipment and even debris that finds its way into swim spaces. 

Managing Water Chemistry: When you think about pool chemicals the first thing to come to mind is likely chlorine. Sanitizers are a key component of achieving clean water but they aren’t the only one. Shocking the pool is a good idea when you begin to notice cloudy water or algae growth but maintaining a sanitary swim space involves balancing sanitizers, pH levels, total alkalinity and calcium. 

Dealing With Debris: It is easy to skim the surface of pool water removing leaves, seed pods, pollen and even insects. Even with a pool cover on, unwanted items have a way of sneaking into pool basins and ruining the visual appeal of your swim space both at the surface level and underneath. Heavier items will sink to the bottom of the pool and floating items will need to be skimmed out and emptied from skimmer baskets. It seems easy to flip the switch on a pool vacuum but this often isn’t enough to get results. Removing debris means putting a manual pool vacuum to use, reaching into hard angles and hard to reach areas, as well as using specialty brushes to remove residue from pool walls and water lines. 

Testing Internal Systems: Stagnant water is prone to contamination. The goal of a circulation system is to keep chemically treated water flowing through your lines and into pool basins. If a pool pump begins to fail your water will be left sitting still and is vulnerable to contamination. Regular testing of pumps, lines and even heaters helps to provide pool owners insight into the condition of your pool equipment. 

Keeping Filters Clean: The filter is the unsung hero of any swim space. The aim of any pool filter is to trap and hold unwanted items while letting filtered water pass through. Over time debris will clog up filters making it difficult for water to pass through. The harder that water systems have to work, the more energy they use. This means higher rates of energy use and an increase in daily running costs. Cartridge filters should be removed, cleaned and reinstalled every 3-4 months while sand filters should be emptied and refilled with new sand every 3-5 years. 

Seasonal Pool Care: The needs of your swimming pool will change from one season to another. In order to avoid damage throughout fall and winter, it is important to drop water levels and winterize plugs while the spring season means deep cleanings and heavy water treatments. No matter how you look at it, these are complex processes and if done improperly will have a negative ripple effect throughout your water systems. Failing to close a pool properly for the off-season can result in damage caused by frozen water including structural damage, liner issues and even burst pipes. 

Puddle Residential Pool Care: Great Results Brought Right to Your Front Door 

In a high traffic commercial space, there are likely whole teams of individuals committed to keeping swim spaces clean and sanitary but when it comes to pool care at home, you are left to handle all of the heavy lifting all on your own — unless you call Puddle, that is! Each member of the Puddle team is local to the Markham area so we understand what your swim space is up against. 

No two pools are identical, even those that are the same make and model. In order to get the best results for your swimming pool it is important to consider everything from the age and condition of your pool, along with the climate, nearby plant life and surrounding locations. High heats mean high growth rates and that means higher rates of contamination. Keeping up with this means tweaking your treatment plan in order to achieve the best possible results. Having your water tested by an expert means these customized plans are just part of the process. 

By offering a wide range of services for your pool and/or hot tub, local experts keep your water systems in great shape, all year long. Puddle services include routine cleaning programs, service calls, seasonal treatments, deep cleans/refreshes, pool inspections and pool leak detection services, so there is never a bad time to call an expert. In addition to top results, Puddle technicians provide peace of mind with fully insured staff and services as well as affordable rates and transparent pricing. With options for booking pool treatments online or by phone, Puddle clients are able to reach out to technicians 24 hours a day.
