Niagara Falls Seasonal Pool Maintenance

Maintaining a clean and balanced swim space is a top priority at the height of the swim season but just getting there is a lot of hard work. Restoring pools after the off-season is a multi-step process and so is closing it down in fall. Transitioning from one season to another can be harsh on your swim space but local Puddle Pros are here to help. Niagara Falls seasonal pool maintenance protects pools from freezing in fall and restores water condition in spring. 

If you have ever opened your pool on your own, you understand how much time, energy and money it takes. Even if you stock up on pool chemicals, test strips and equipment, that doesn’t guarantee that you are going to get the best possible results. An improper closing leads to a more difficult opening in spring and the potential of dealing with damage. 

Seasonal Pool Care: Preparing Your Swim Space 

With the winter months around the corner it is easy to start seeking out tips for fall pool maintenance but this can do more harm than good. Anyone can go online and suggest a whacky way to shut down water systems for the winter but these often aren’t verified and will lead to damage. Instead of taking a chance on untested processes, have Puddle handle your seasonal pool care.

Pool Closings: When closing a pool for the winter the top priority should be avoiding damage to both structures and internal systems. Frozen water might be fun to skate on but having it inside return lines and plumbing or near pool equipment it can quickly lead to a huge headache. Frozen water in lines will lead to burst pipes and the possibility of water damage, flooding and rot to surrounding areas. Dropping the water level and winterizing drain plugs is a great way to prevent water from seeping into sensitive areas where it can cause damage. It is then time to apply a winter chemical treatment designed to prevent freezing. A solid pool cover will help to prevent algae growth during the off season. 

Pool Openings: The best way to open a pool for the spring season is to start by undoing everything that was done during the closing process. Spring pool care starts with refilling water lines, removing debris, checking up on pool filters and equipment and balancing chemicals to create a sanitary swim space. After months of sitting idle and building up bacteria and contaminants restoring water chemistry isn’t as simple as applying a shock treatment and hopping in. It is important to balance chlorine levels, pH levels, total alkalinity and calcium. Mesh covers during spring will allow sunlight to reach pool water, helping to regulate heating and cut down on energy use.
