Paris Pool Opening

Throughout Ontario, winters can feel like they last forever. After months of being trapped indoors, pool owners want to enjoy the sunshine and there is no better place to do that than from inside a freshly cleaned swimming pool. As soon as warm weather rolls around it is tempting to pull back pool covers but you might be shocked with what you find.

Over months of sitting stagnant pool water is likely discoloured, bad smelling, full of debris and algae blooms. Diving into dirty water is a serious health and safety risk, so leave your spring pool care to the experts! Professional Paris pool opening services restore swim spaces after the off-season, cleaning water and making sure that your systems run smoothly.

How to Open Your Pool

It is easy to do a quick Google search on the best ways to open a pool but without the right technical knowledge, even a step-by-step guide can be hard to follow. Pool maintenance is not as simple as throwing in a bit of shock and hoping for the best. In order to get the best results possible, it is important treat and clean your pool with a multi-step approach that caters to the needs of your water system inside and out.

Undoing Closing Practices: When closing down your pool for the winter there are certain processes necessary to protect water systems from the cold. These are often as simple as dropping water levels and winterizing drain plugs. Closings can also mean removing detachable components to be dried and stored for winter. Levels can be refilled with a simple garden hose.

Water Chemistry: A shock treatment can help to clear away cloudiness or discolouration but it is not enough to make water sanitary again. In order to get your pool ready for use, it is important to monitor the chlorine level but it is also important to consider pH levels, alkalinity and calcium. Basic test kits will point out obvious chemical imbalances but often overlook other aspects of water chemistry, so it is always better left up to the experts.

Debris Removal: Even with a winter cover on, debris has a way of finding its way into pool water. Getting rid of debris is a key step in creating a safe and sanitary swim space. This mean vacuuming up sunken debris from the bottom of the pool, skimming floating items off of water surfaces and emptying skimmer baskets. It is also important to scrub residue from sides, walls and flooring where necessary.

Assess Pool Equipment: When transitioning from winter to spring, it is a good idea to swap out solid winter covers for mesh ones. Just remove the cover from your pool and store it until spring. Sub-zero temperatures are known to make plastic brittle so it is important to inspect pool equipment to make sure that it is in good shape. Testing and inspection of the pool pump and filter, along with heaters, motors and returns lines make sure that your pool stays running throughout the swim season.
