Newmarket Pool Opening

After a long winter there is nothing that pool owners want more than to fire up their water systems for use but there is a lot of work to do before you can dive on in. If your pool has been sitting stagnant for months during the fall and winter, you are likely going to pull back your pool cover to find a swamp! Stepping into dirty water is a recipe for disaster, so let a professional clean it for you. Let a local Puddle technician handle your Newmarket pool opening so you can cannonball safely into the swim season. 

Proper spring pool care is not as simple as pulling back winter covers and applying a shock treatment. In order to get the best results it is important to clean your pool from top to bottom, inside and out. Taking an amateur approach to your pool opening doesn’t just produce subpar results, it takes a long time. While you are busy trying to balance water and remove debris, you are missing out on the first warm days of spring. By letting a Puddle technician open your pool you get all the benefits without any of the hassle, so you can make the most out of the swim season. 

Spring Pool Maintenance: Set the Stage for a Successful Swim Season 

If you find yourself removing your pool cover only to find cloudy or discoloured water, algae growth and a ton of debris, a shock treatment won’t be enough to restore water condition. The best way to open your pool for the season is to undo the closing process, and then break the cleaning process down into multiple steps, each of which treats a different area of your swim space. 

Undo Your Closing: Proper pool closings involve dropping water levels and winterizing drain plugs. Opening your water systems for the season means grabbing a garden hose and refilling the water level and opening plugs. This is also the ideal time to change out solid winter covers for mesh pool covers that will help with heating your water. 

Ditch Debris: Even with a cover on, unwanted items have a way of making their way into your pool and water systems. This means dealing with months of leaves, seed pods, dirt and debris collected at the bottom of your pool, floating along water surfaces and clogging up skimmer baskets. Manual vacuums are needed to reach into corners or navigate complicated areas around built-in steps, specialty brushes remove residue from water lines and skimmer poles are needed to scoop up floating items. 

Restore Water Condition: When opening a swim space for the season it is incredibly important to make sure that water is properly cleaned and balanced. When dealing with a high rate of contaminants a basic test kit isn’t enough to get the right results. An initial shock treatment might help to clear away cloudiness for a superficial improvement but this doesn’t mean that water is safe to swim in. It will take multiple applications of specialized pool chemicals to create a clean swim space. These chemical treatments take time to settle in and take effect. From there, technicians will perform a final balancing of chlorine levels, pH levels, total alkalinity and calcium for perfect water chemistry. 

Check Pool Equipment: After months of disuse it is important to inspect pool equipment for any signs of weakening or breakage. This includes your cover, pump, pool filter and return lines. If any detachable components were removed for storage over the off-season they will need to be reinstalled and tested for functionality.
