Ottawa Pool Closing

Throughout the winter months, Ottawa becomes a snowy wonderland. As beautiful as fresh snow fall might be, it can quickly become a pain for property owners. Spending hours shovelling walkways and de-icing sidewalks doesn’t leave much time for pool care. Shutting down your water systems in fall can help to protect your swim space all year long. Professional Ottawa pool closing services take care of your seasonal maintenance, so you can relax.

When temperatures drop, pools are used less frequently and this means during fall, pool care is not a priority. Over long periods of disuse, pools are collecting debris, forming algae and internal components are becoming brittle. Instead of dealing with the fallout of winter damage, call an expert to keep your water systems running smoothly.

The Best Way to Close Your Pool

The secret to great fall maintenance is to have an expert handle it for you! From handling pool chemicals, scrubbing structures, inspecting vulnerable areas and even removing and storing components, closing your pool is a lot of work! You might be able to shock your pool or skim out debris, but when you want real results, you will need to dig deep!

It is important to treat your pool according to its unique style, age and condition. Closing down an above ground pool is different from shutting down an in-ground model. For example, water bags are used to prevent freezing in above ground pools, while draining water is necessary when dealing with in-ground pools. Dropping water levels to a few inches below the skimmer line prevents freezing, while winterizing drain plugs prevents water from sneaking inside. It is also important to blow out the lines of your system, ensuring that there is no possibility of freezing. Detachable items and pool equipment can also be removed, dried and stored over colder months.

Everything from water condition and the safety cover plays a role in the overall look and functionality of your pool system. Mesh covers in the summer allow sunlight to help heat pools, but in the winter these models can encourage algae growth by creating a warm, damp, covered space for it to thrive. If you place a winter cover over a system that is already showing signs of algae growth, it will only get worse over time. If this is the case, upping the chlorine level in spring will not be enough to get water clean.

Puddle Pool Services: Fall Pool Maintenance & Closings

Closing a swimming pool for the cold season requires more than just pulling a plug and letting it drain. If you are dropping the water in an inground pool, where that water drains should be a matter of great importance. Calling an expert for your pool closing can help to avoid water damage, leaks, and flooding and maintain the condition of water systems.

A proper closing in the fall makes for a more efficient opening in spring. When you want to make the most out of the swim season, you don’t want to waste time having to open your pool. When you hire an expert, you can rest easy that everything from your pool filter to liner has been inspected and water has been balanced.

We own a commercial property with an indoor pool and hot tub. We switched over pool maintenance companies about 6 months ago, from another company in Ottawa to Puddle Pools. We have been incredibly impressed with the service that we receive from both Zach and Richard. They have been incredibly responsive to all of our questions and are quick to take action whenever we encounter an issue, whether it is big or small. They also perform weekly routine maintenance on our pool and spa and they are always on time, courteous, professional and dependable. We are so happy to have found Puddle Pools and highly recommend them!

Called Puddle Pools Ottawa and consulted about changing out old for a new pool liner. Richard and Zachary answered all of my questions and earned my business. We couldn’t be happier so far! They did great and the pool looks amazing!

My experience with Puddle Pools was nothing short of spectacular, a true highlight in my homeownership journey. Initially, I was on the fence about who to trust with my pool liner replacement, especially given the tricky timing towards the end of fall last year. Yet, Puddle Pools stood out not just for their competitive quotes but for their unwavering commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. Zach, my point of contact, was a pivotal figure throughout this process. He epitomized professionalism and warmth, making what could have been a stressful endeavor feel like a walk in the park. His prompt responses and understanding nature underscored the company's customer-first ethos, making me feel valued and heard at every turn. The reasonability of their quotes was the first sign that I had struck gold with Puddle Pools. In a sector where costs can spiral, their straightforward and fair pricing was a welcome change. It’s refreshing to find a company that aligns its interests so closely with those of its clients, ensuring you get the best bang for your buck. The quality of their work speaks volumes, proving that they don't just meet expectations—they soar above them. Given the stellar outcome of the liner replacement, I didn't hesitate to entrust them with the installation of a pool safety cover. Once more, they exceeded my expectations, reinforcing my decision to look nowhere else for pool-related services. In summary, if you're in Ottawa and pondering over pool services, let me save you some time: Puddle Pools is the answer. Their blend of exemplary service, fair pricing, and superior work quality places them a cut above the rest. I'm beyond satisfied with their service and eagerly anticipate continuing this relationship for all my pool needs. A heartfelt thank you to Zach and the Puddle Pools team for a remarkable job well done!

Richard was the representative that came to close our family pool. Richard was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and had tremendous patience for every question I had. He responded with detailed responses and took the time to show me what he was explaining. Would strongly recommend this company for all your pool openings and closing! Have already asked to be placed on the list for the next fall closing.
