Oakville Pool Opening

After suffering through a long winter, it is normal for Oakville residents to want to make the most out of the sunshine, and there is no better way to do that than from inside a pool. Firing up swimming pools for the spring is not as simple as just flipping the switch on a heater and hopping in. Over the course of the cold months, swim spaces are often left sitting stagnant and that can bring on a whole host of issues. Instead of struggling through trial and error or giving up leisure time to pool care, call an expert for your Oakville pool opening service.

Pool openings and closings work hand in hand to protect swim spaces throughout the year. When it is time to open your swimming pool for the summer, it is important to understand what was done during closing. Instead of just pulling back winter covers, it is important to consider everything from the water level, pool equipment, water condition and more. Puddle technicians are well-versed in all of these areas and are ready to open your water systems for the swimming season.

How to Properly Open Your Pool

Throughout the summer, pool maintenance might be as simple as applying chemicals, removing debris and emptying skimmer baskets but as seasons change, water systems are more demanding. More than focusing on the chlorine level alone, spring pool care needs to focus on the inner workings, mechanisms and structures, which can be a complicated process — unless you call Puddle, that is!

Maintaining Pool Equipment: Visual inspections of pool systems and surrounding areas are important at any time of year. Winter can be harsh toward vinyl liners, as well as any plastic components. Freezing temperatures make plastic brittle while expansion can damage pipes and liners. Having a trained eye inspect components can help to identify potential issues and head them off before causing extensive damage. A well-timed liner replacement can avoid water damage and the need for structural repairs.

Water Chemistry: When opening up your pool in spring, pool water has likely been sitting idle for a while. You might remove the cover from your system, only to find cloudy water, algae blooms, foul smells or other nasty surprises. If this is the case, water will need a chemical treatment plan that addresses everything from chlorine and sanitizers, pH levels, total alkalinity and more. Simple testing kits cannot always identify all of the necessary chemicals to maintaining a sanitary swim space.

Dealing with Debris: Having debris in pool systems is common. During the swimming season, skimming out water surfaces is a daily practice but over the course of winter, any debris that has snuck into your system is left to sit. Over time, items will rot and break down, filling skimmer baskets and creating clogs in filtration systems. Heavier items will have sunk to the bottom of the pool, resting against vinyl liners and leaving stains behind.
