Oakville Seasonal Pool Maintenance

As temperatures begin to drop, it is easy to ignore the warning signs that winter is on its way. Saying goodbye to summer is always a tough pill to swallow but trying to ignore it can make things even worse — particularly for a pool or hot tub environment. Professional Oakville seasonal pool maintenance helps property owners both close down and open up their swim spaces, making for easy transitions, no matter the time of year.

Unlike your average pool maintenance and cleaning project, seasonal pool care comes with additional steps and a bit more pressure. Neglecting seasonal care opens the door for large-scale damage, as well as the need for costly repairs and replacements. Hiring professional technicians helps to put your best foot forward and maintain a clean and smooth-running space.

Pool Care: Summer Months vs. Winter Months

Seasonal pool care is necessary twice per year, once in spring and once in fall, just before winter. In both cases, there are some practices that are shared but both treatments demand differing multi-step approaches in order to get the best possible results. Wherever pool treatments are concerned, it is important to break services down into multi-step approaches, catered to the needs and condition of your unique space.

No matter the time of year, water chemistry is key to a safe and sanitary environment. During high use months like spring and summer, it is common to test the water regularly but when opening or closing swimming pools, it becomes much less common. The fact is that, when opening up in spring, water has been stagnant for months on end and can be harbouring tons of bacteria.

Closing Your Pool: When closing your pool, it is important to drop water levels to avoid any unexpected damage. As water freezes and thaws, it leads to expansion, which can damage interior mechanisms and structures. In addition to dropping water levels, it is important to treat the remaining water with a shock treatment, designed to help mitigate contamination until spring. This is also an opportune time to examine all aspects of your water feature, from leak detection to overall condition of your space.

Opening Your Pool: Running out to the pool store is common right before spring but there is more to opening than a shock treatment. Refilling your pool will throw its chemistry into a tailspin, so it is important to not only reach for basic test strips, but look for pH levels, total chlorination, and other factors. Scrubbing steps, liners and surfaces is necessary to getting rid of any bacteria buildup, as well as eliminating the risk of slips and falls associated with slippery surfaces.
