Osoyoos Residential Pool Services

Having a pool at home is a major real estate goal for many Osoyoos residents. What could be better than beating the heat right in your own backyard or hosting all your friends and family over a long weekend? As great as it is to own a swimming pool, keeping them clean is a real headache! Don’t sacrifice your leisure time or learn to live with green water when you can call Puddle for your Osoyoos residential pool services. 

From the outside, pools don’t seem all that complicated but there is more to them than meets the eye! Pools are made up of many complex systems and keeping them clean and running means dealing with each of these. Anyone can vacuum up debris from the bottom of the pool or apply a shock treatment when water starts to go cloudy but this isn’t enough to keep water clean and sanitary. When you want the best results for your swim space, it is important to test and balance water, remove debris, clean filters, inspect circulation systems and components. If this sounds like a lot, that’s because it is but our Puddle Pros are here to help! 

Residential Pool Care: How to Keep Water Systems Clean & Running Smoothly 

Pool maintenance can feel like a full-time job. Add this to an already busy schedule and it is easy to overlook a water treatment every now and then but even a bit of neglect can lead to a serious issue. It doesn’t take long for clean water to become cloudy and then green and/or full of algae. Stepping foot into contaminated water isn’t just unpleasant, it is dangerous! Dirty water causes recreational water illnesses like skin irritations, eye infections, ear infections, digestive issues and even e-coli poisoning. Don’t take a risk when local Puddle Pros have broken pool care down into a science. 

Water Chemistry: Keeping pool water balanced isn’t as simple as shocking the pool every once in a while. A shock treatment might clear away cloudy water but it isn’t enough to make things sanitary. Anyone can visit a local pool supply store for testing kits or strips but these aren’t always effective. Maintaining balance requires proper application of pool chemicals, as well as testing and balancing of chlorine levels, pH levels, total alkalinity and calcium. Proper water chemistry not only keeps swimmers safe, it helps to reduce algae growth and keeps your swim space in great shape. 

Debris Removal: A major part of keeping a pool clean is getting rid of unwanted items, the trick is that this is easier said than done! Anyone can skim floating items off the surface of pool water but what about debris that sunken down to the bottom of the pool? Heavier items will sink and sit against liners, eventually causing permanent staining. Floating items will rot and break apart, becoming harder to remove and clogging up filters or skimmer baskets. Robotic pool vacuums can remove items from flat, open areas but aren’t able to reach into hard angles, corners or the complicated areas around stairs. Puddle technicians use speciality tools like manual vacuums, brushes and skimmers to remove unwanted items from all shapes and sizes. 

Filters & Circulation Systems: Stagnant water is dirty water. If water isn’t moving, it won’t take long for it to start to go discoloured or bacteria to take over. The goal of pool filters are to trap and hold small, unwanted items that are floating around in water, while letting filtered water pass back through. If filters are clogged, it will force pool pumps to work harder, pushing water through. This means using more energy, as well as raising utility bills and causing unnecessary wear and tear to internal components and that means premature repairs and replacements. It is important to remove, clean and reinstall cartridge filters every 3-4 months or empty and replace sand in sand filters every 3-5 years. 

Seasonal Care: As hard as it might seem to keep up with regular cleaning and maintenance, a changing of the season will flip your routine on its head. Failing to close a pool on time in fall can result in serious damage, while waiting too long to open up in spring means missing out on the first warm days of spring. Protect your pool by having an expert drop your water level, winterize plugs, treat pool water and cover it up. As much as you might want to fire up your water systems at the first sign of warm weather, there is a lot to do before you dive in. Don’t risk stepping into dirty water when you can call a local Puddle Pro instead. 

Pool Care At Home: Leave the Heavy Lifting to a Puddle Pro 

As a pool owner, you know how demanding water systems can be. If you find yourself struggling to keep up with the needs of your swimming pool, let a Puddle technician handle it instead.

The secret to keeping your pool cleaner is to create a routine program that works.
