Ottawa Seasonal Pool Maintenance

Throughout Ottawa, pools do not get a lot of attention over the winter months. When temperatures drop, pool care falls to the background, but our Puddle Pros can help set your water systems up for success. Whether you are closing down in fall or opening up in spring, our team of Puddle technicians are here to help you out. Professional Ottawa seasonal pool maintenance keeps your system running smoothly, all year long.

Swimming pools might seem like simple features at a glance, but they are more complicated than meets the eye. When the temperature begins to drop, it is important to take precautions to avoid unnecessary damage, and to pave the way for a quick and easy opening in spring. When you want to make the most out of your swim season, while protecting your swim space, call a Puddle Pro for in-depth treatments, made just for you!

Seasonal Pool Care: What to Do & When

Even if you have years of experience in caring for a pool or hot tub, seasonal care is tricky, even at the best of times. Both opening and closings are multi-step processes that treat pools from the bottom, up and address everything from pool water to filtration systems and more. Missing just one aspect of seasonal care can result in subpar results, or damage. Instead of taking a risk, call a Puddle Pro for great results and peace of mind.

Pool Opening: The second that the sun comes out in spring, it is easy to want to pull back that pool cover and take a dip. Chances are, after months of sitting stagnant, there is likely some level of algae growth, a ton of debris, residue and cloudy water. If this is the case, standard pool chemicals are not enough to get water clean again. Having a pool expert test the water makes it easy to create a clean and inviting swim space for friends, family, tenants, guests and customers. Balance water levels and fill the pool back up with enough time to start the season off right.

Pool Closing: When temperatures reach an average of 15 degrees, it is time to close down your pool system. It can be tough to admit that the summer season is over but for pool owners, it is important to take note of the cold and plan ahead for it. Dropping water lines to fall below jets and skimmers helps to prevent damage caused by freezing water. Winterizing plugs is another key component of pool closings, as is installing a winter cover. Mesh covers are great for summer but as temperatures cool, these create a damp, covered and warm environment, which is ideal for algae to form.

In-ground pool systems might seem similar to above ground models, but when prepping swim spaces for winter, pools need to be treated according to their unique needs. For example, an in-ground pool requires water levels to be dropped but an above ground pool uses water bags to prevent freezing. Understanding how to apply opening chemicals, as well as pool equipment is key to a successful seasonal service.

Wow! First time using Puddle Pools and what a great experience. Bought a place with a pool which I know nothing about. After having a great conversation and trusted advice with them over the phone I decided to go with their pool maintenance plan. Richard came by and he took care of everything. He even took the time to show me all that is being done and ensured that the pool will be always kept up swim ready. I'm happy I made the right decision to go with this company, I'm less stressed and ready to swim and enjoy my pool!

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!
