Ottawa Pool Equipment Installation & Replacements

Regular swimming pool care normally focuses on water chemistry and obvious debris removal, but what about the systems that keep it running? Pool equipment is what makes these systems work! From keeping water moving, to new and inventive ways to beat back bacteria and make the most out of the swim season, our Puddle Pros can help! Expert Ottawa pool equipment installation and replacements can help a new swim space start out on the right foot or update existing pools for better functionality.

If pool equipment is old or damaged it can have a negative impact across your entire water system. This can mean leaks, high chemical usage or chemical odours and other side effects. Even if your pumps and filters are still running, that doesn’t mean that they are as efficient as they could be. Replacing aged equipment with updated and modernized models is an inexpensive way to improve output, function and even utility bills.

The Importance of Pool Equipment

Functional pool equipment is the key to keeping water safe, sanitary and helps to boost curb appeal. Without a running circulation system, pools would quickly become filled up with debris and bacteria. You wouldn’t swim in a swamp, so your pool shouldn’t look like one! Pool equipment is divided into two main categories: the necessary and the nice. Pumps and filters are necessary, while pool heaters and pool sanitation systems are helpful additions. When properly installed, pool heat pumps can help to extend the swim season.

Pool Pumps: A pool pump moves water through your system. Without it, water sits stagnant and will become contaminated in no time. Pumps pull water through skimmers and into filters, where particles and debris are filtered out before water is returned to basins. If your pump is making noise while operating, it is likely time for a replacement. A pool pump replacement ensures that systems are running quietly and efficiently, extending the lifespan of materials and even cutting back on running costs. Professional pool pump installation ensures that your mechanisms are in good condition and can last anywhere from 5-10 years.

Pool Filters: If you start to notice that your swimming pool water is looking a little murky, it might be time to call a professional to inspect and treat your pool filter. When filters are not in good condition, it is possible for debris and particles to become trapped in pool water. This will quickly lead to unsanitary spaces. Filter heads can leak internally or outwardly, or become brittle in cold weather. Consulting an expert can help pool owners choose between a sand filter or cartridge filters.

UV Systems: Chemicals and sanitizers are the most common way to kill bacteria in swimming pool water but these can have side effects, particularly when it comes to vinyl liners. More and more pool owners are trying to cut back on the use of chlorine, bromine or other sanitizers and UV systems are a viable option. UV light for water sanitation systems in pools can reduce the need for chemical sanitizers, like chlorine systems up to 80%. Avoid the skin and eye irritations that come along with chemical exposure.

Pool Heaters: Throughout Ontario, the fall season can come on quickly, putting a stop to the swimming season. Pool heater installation makes it possible to open pools early and close late, extending the swim season on both sides. The most common types of pool heating are gas pool heaters and heat pumps. Gas models often use a pilot light that can blow out at inconvenient times but heat water quickly and in almost any condition. Heat pumps are electric and require an outdoor temperature of 10 degrees or higher.

Puddle Pool Services: Guaranteed Equipment, Guaranteed Results

Puddle Pros cannot only perform expert installations but will help pool owners choose the right product and model to suit the unique needs of their swim space. An amateur approach to pool cleaning can lead to subpar results but attempting DIY on a gas line can result in disaster. It is always better to consult a professional before attempting to install or replace gas or electrical components. When performed incorrectly, pool light repair can end up causing damage to the electrical system and the light fixture itself.

Puddle Pool technicians do not just install a one-size-fits all component and walk away. Our team of dedicated specialists work with pool owners every step of the way. From choosing the best type and model of filter or heater, discussing options for upgrading existing equipment and the best way to care for existing systems, our Puddle Pros work with clients from start to finish. Fully insured technicians and services provide peace of mind as well as expert installations and replacements.

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.
