Oshawa Seasonal Pool Maintenance

In the same way that you might prep your living space for a shift in weather, you should give your pool the same consideration, but it is easy to forget. It is easy to close the door on an indoor water system, or throw safety covers over outdoor models, only to forget about them until spring. When sitting stagnant over long periods, water systems are prone to developing algae, you can expect a ton of debris, both floating and sunken, and potentially harmful bacteria. Calling a Puddle Pool Pro for your Oshawa seasonal pool maintenance helps to protect your system through winter and makes for a smoother opening in spring. 

Throughout warm weather and the swimming season, cleaning and maintenance might appear fairly cut and dried, but during a seasonal shift, the needs of your swim space are much more demanding. Outdoor swimming pools are left out to the elements, all winter long, so it is important to ensure that they have everything they need to withstand the weather but this is easier said than done. By breaking a pool closing, or winterization practice into a multi-step approach, our team of experts can help to prolong the lifespan of your materials and keep your pool running better, for longer. 

Swimming Pool Maintenance: What to Do and When 

In the heat of summer, your pool is likely getting a lot of attention but as temperatures drop, it is easy to neglect swim spaces. Even one missed chemical treatment will have your pool water looking cloudy, discoloured or looking like a swamp. Letting water sit over the off-season means pulling back your pool cover to an unpleasant surprise in spring — unless you call Puddle, that is! Our team of experts have turned seasonal pool care into a science, protecting swim spaces over the winter and helping clients make the most out of the warm weather in spring and summer. 

It is easy to dive into a pool when it is already set-up, but getting there can be a complicated process. Calling an experienced pool service helps to create an inviting, visually appealing and sanitary swim space. Even when water appears to be clean and bright, there is a good chance that it is still in need of a proper cleaning or in-depth chemical treatment. Expert pool opening services not only add water, but balance it too, reducing health risks, so you can kick back and relax poolside, with some peace of mind! 

Fall Pool Care: When the average outdoor temperature reaches 15 degrees, it is time to close your pool. Closing your pool earlier than this leaves the door open to unexpectedly hot days and increased risk of algae growth. Everyone knows that water freezes during long periods of sub-zero temperatures. Even if your pool basin doesn’t freeze over completely, it doesn’t take much for the small amounts inside internal water systems to freeze solid. Cold weather make plastic brittle and frozen water expands in pipes, risking bursting. Preparing your pool for the winter requires dropping the water level so it falls a few inches below the skimmer line. This is also the ideal time to add winterizing chemicals to help avoid freezing. 

Spring Pool Care: After a long winter it is common to want to open your pool at the first sign of warm weather but this is easier said than done! During the spring and summer swim season, weekly maintenance is key but it all starts with a pool opening. A simple test kit is a great tool when your pool has already been deep cleaned for the start of the season but they aren’t enough to undo everything that happened during the off-season. Getting your pool ready means having to remove any debris, scrub away residue, inspect pool equipment, balancing chlorine levels, pH level, alkalinity, calcium and more.
