Mississauga Pool Opening

It is common for residents in Mississauga to count down the days until spring and what could be better than starting off the season with a dip in a pool? As great as it is to do laps in a backyard pool, getting your water system ready for the swimming season is a complicated process. When you want to get the most out of your swim season, call a Puddle technician for your Mississauga pool opening service. 

Instead of just pulling back a pool cover and hopping in, getting your pool ready for use is a multi-step process that treats water, structures and internal mechanisms as well as surrounding areas. Overlooking just one aspect of your opening can lead to a widespread issue, so pass the heavy lifting onto a highly trained technician with years of industry experience under their belts. 

Spring Pool Care: The Best Way to Open Your Pool 

Pool maintenance practices shift throughout the year. What might have kept your water clean during summer won’t work in fall and after your pool has been sitting for an entire season, it will need a little extra TLC to get back into usable condition. In order to make swimming pools usable again, it is important to treat and inspect water systems at every level. 

It is common enough to remove the cover from a pool in spring only to find cloudy or discoloured water, a ton of debris and maybe even algae. Restoring swimming pools needs more than basic test strips or a quick shock treatment. Shocking the pool might help to clean away cloudiness or help to reduce discolouration but these are not enough to restore water to being sanitary. 

Removing the debris from your pool is the first step toward firing up your system. This means skimming floating debris from surfaces, vacuuming up sunken debris and cleaning out filters and skimmer baskets. Failing to skim out lighter items leads to clogs and blockages in filters and circulation systems, while sunken items can leave permanent stains on vinyl liners. It seems simple enough to vacuum the pool and suck up debris but standard vacuum heads are not able to access hard to reach areas. 

Testing kits are designed to help maintain water condition over the course of the swim season but when in-depth chemical treatments are necessary, they just don’t cut it. In addition to monitoring the chlorine level and pH level of your pool, it is important to apply algaecides when necessary, as well as a multi-part mix of neutralizers, sanitizers and other treatments designed to balance water pH, alkalinity and calcium. Having an expert test and balance your pool water means expert insight and results every time. It is also common for the water level in your pool to be dropped during a closing but it is easy to add water with a basic garden hose. 

Winterizing plugs is an important part of closing a pool, but it is also a hinderance to opening. Open drain plugs allow water to flow freely through, aiding in circulation. On closing, detachable components are often removed, dried and stored for the winter. Replacing this pool equipment is key to having a functional water system. This is also the ideal time to check up on your pool filter to decide whether or not cartridges need to be cleaned or sand needs to be replaced.
