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.

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.
