Osoyoos Pool Opening

After a long winter there is not better way to ring in the spring than with a dip in your pool. You might be keen to dive into your swim space at the first sign of warm weather but there is a lot of work that needs to be done before you can cannonball in. More often than not, pool owners pull back winter covers only to see swampy water, foul smells and tons of debris. Instead of spending the first days of spring scrubbing, skimming and water balancing, call a local Puddle technician. Hiring an expert for your Osoyoos pool opening services means being able to enjoy your swim space and make the most out of the season. 

The Best Way to Open Your Pool 

The best way to fire up your water systems for the swimming season is to have someone else do it for you! After months of sitting idle, swimming pools are likely full of debris, algae blooms, bacteria and contaminants. A simple shock treatment might help to clear away some cloudiness or discolouration but it isn’t enough to make water sanitary.

Dirty water doesn’t just look awful, it is a serious risk to health and safety. Stepping foot into contaminated water can result in recreational water illnesses like skin irritations, eye infections, ear infections, digestive illness and even e-coli poisoning. Don’t take a risk on an improper opening when you can call an expert instead.

The first step to opening your pool for use is to undo everything that was done on the closing process. Dropping the water level and winterizing plugs is common practice when closing so it is important to refill water and open plugs so water can flow through. Any detachable components that were removed to be dried and stored through the off-season, need to be inspected and reinstalled. From here, it is time to check your pool pump and filter to ensure that they are in good, working order. 

Once pool equipment is replaced and systems are up and running it is time for the fun to begin!  It is important to remove any debris that has built up in your system but this is easier said than done. A robotic pool cleaner can’t reach into the corners or navigate steps. Getting rid of unwanted items means using manual vacuums to clean hard to reach areas, speciality brushes to scrub away residue that has built up near water lines and emptying skimmer baskets. 

With systems set up and debris removed, the next step is to finalize water treatments. Test strips might help you maintain water chemistry in a system that has already been in use but you’ll need more than a test kit to restore water condition after winter. In addition to initial shock treatments, clean water means balancing chlorine levels, pH levels, total alkalinity and calcium. This is also the ideal time to swap out solid winter covers for a mesh pool cover that will help to regulate heating throughout the summer.
