Keeping a pool in great shape means balancing water chemistry in pool water, maintaining pool toys and equipment, inspecting filtration systems and a host of other things. While these tasks are a must on a regular basis, pool owners also need to understand the important processes of opening and closing your system according to the seasons. Contacting a professional for your Penticton seasonal pool maintenance can help to keep your system in great shape, all year long.
Your To-Do List According to Temperature
Everyone knows that pools need to be kept clean. Scrubbing pool walls and steps is key to getting rid of slippery surfaces while balanced chemicals and sanitizers keep water crystal clear and sanitary. Once you’ve got a handle on keeping your pool clean, it is time to consider how your pool or spa will hold up during a seasonal change.
Pool Opening: When opening a pool, it is assumed that your feature has been closed for months. As you remove the cover, you can expect to see some contaminated water left over from last season. Proper closing practice means that water levels should be dropped so there should not be much. Everything should be scrubbed down and water should be refilled and shocked.
Pool Closing: When it is time to close your pool for the winter, water levels need to be dropped and shocked to ensure that it can withstand the coming months of cold and disuse. In addition to water treatments, it is important to care for pool equipment as well. From diving boards to skimmer baskets and even filters and pool vacuums.
