Mission Pool Closing

Summers in the Fraser Valley are hot, humid and best spent poolside. Everyone enjoys cooling off in a swimming pool but when the leaves begin to change, it is time to give up on warm weather and get ready for fall. Getting a swim space ready for winter weather is not as simple as throwing on a cover and hoping for the best. Freezing temperatures, harsh winds and heavy rains can all take a toll on swimming pools, so trust an expert to protect your swim space from the elements. Professional Mission pool closing services prepare for cold weather, reduce the risk of damage and pave the way for an easier opening in spring.

Waiting too long to close your pool for the season opens the door to potential damage. As much as you might love a skating rink, your pool should never look like one. Freezing temperatures make plastic brittle, can cause weakened areas to snap and may even lead to burst pipes. When the average temperature outside reaches 15 degrees, it is time to start thinking about closing your system down for the off-season. Avoid damage caused by cold snaps by calling a Puddle Pro instead.

Fall Pool Care: What to Do & When

There is no definitive schedule for when to close your pool. British Columbia is known for its mild winters and that often means being able to leave swimming pools open longer. While other parts of the country will often close down around the September long weekend, pool owners in Mission can often push the process all the way to October and sometimes even November. 15 degrees can happen at any time and when it does, be ready to call a Puddle technician.

It is obvious that you should always keep your pool covered to avoid debris buildup but you can’t just throw on a winter cover and let water sit until spring. Even if your basin has not frozen over completely, that doesn’t mean that your system is safe. In areas with small amounts of water, freezing is much more common. Dropping water levels in a swimming pool to below jets and skimmers keeps water out of sensitive areas like plumbing lines and surrounding pool pumps and equipment.

In an inground pool, dropping water levels and winterizing drain plugs stops water from seeping into sensitive areas. When dealing with an above ground pool, air bags can reduce the risk of freezing. Winterizing chemicals also help with this, in addition to preventing algae growth from taking over. The additional step to blow out the lines protects return lines. As water freezes, it expands and cause pipes to burst, so it is always important to prevent freezing wherever possible.

Removing debris and inspecting pool equipment is also extremely important to keeping your system running smoothly. If debris is left to sit, it will rot and break apart becoming even more difficult to remove, clogging up filters and filling skimmer baskets. It is always a good idea to inspect pool filters for signs of wear or breakage. Cartridge filters can become damaged in the cold and sand filters might be in need of emptying and replacing sand.

Puddle technicians are local to the Mission area and are able to treat pools of all shapes, sizes and styles. Each member of the team is not only highly trained and experienced, they are also fully insured! When you want peace of mind and excellent results, call a Puddle Pro today.

Not keen on closing? Ask about off-season maintenance plans. A reduced treatment schedule keeps pools in great shape over winter and makes opening up in spring as easy as turning on a heater.
