Port Moody Pool Closing

During the warmer months, Port Moody is a bustling community with tourists coming from all over. It is easy to get wrapped up in the sunshine but as summer comes to an end, property owners have a lot of work to do. Preparing a property for the cold season takes time and effort — especially if you have a pool! Port Moody pool closing protects water systems from the cold, prevents damage, and paves the way for a smooth opening in spring.

Cold weather and swimming pools do not often go together. If you are not using your swim space frequently, it is easy to overlook regular cleaning practices. Instead of a bit of cloudy water, failing to treat swimming pools for the cold season can result in serious issues, like weakening and breakage, burst pipes, contamination, algae growth and a ton of debris.

The Best Way to Close Your Pool For Winter

Whether you are working with an in-ground swim space or an above ground pool, there are a few things that will always need to be done to avoid unnecessary damage. In order to get the best results for your swimming pools and water systems, closures should be broken down into steps, each of which address a different aspect of your swimming pool.

All it takes is a quick online search to find tons of tips for fall pool maintenance but nothing compares to a customized treatment plan, created by experienced technicians.

Winterizing Chemicals: Pool owners are very concerned with water chemistry during the high traffic months but when not in use, water balance is often overlooked. A chemical treatment during closings goes a long way in preventing algae growth through the slow seasons. Unlike other parts of the country, pool antifreeze is not necessary in Port Moody but that is not to say that seasonal chemical treatments can’t benefit swim spaces.

Pool Equipment: During the winter months, cold weather can cause plastic to become brittle. Frozen water in pipes can expand by up to 9%. This is enough to cause pipes to burst or warp construction materials in the surrounding area. Closing for the season is a great time to inspect pool pumps, return lines, winter covers and more. It is also a good idea to winterize drain plugs to prevent water from seeping into sensitive areas. This is also a time to check the pressure gauges on a sand filter, or inspect and clean cartridge filters.

Drop Water Levels & Remove Debris: If you have an inground pool, it is a good idea to drop the water level in your swimming pool, so it falls below jets and skimmers. Above ground pools benefit from installing air bags to prevent freezing. In an outdoor pool, cleaning away debris and emptying skimmer baskets prevents unnecessary rot and bacteria.

Had my pool heater serviced by Kat. She was able to make it a day earlier than scheduled and even though I wasn't home, she kept me informed along the way via phone and sent me photos as updates. I'll be sure to use Puddle Pools again!

I would hands down use Kat again. I will use her next year for opening and closing the pool. Kat did the most stellar job and I cannot say enough good things about her.

We are newbies to owning a pool so needless to say it was pretty daunting to navigate through the maintenance. We feel very fortunate to have met Kat Lopez who not only helped explained the process, but walked us through it step by step. She is very patient and prompt in replying to queries. She would arrive on time when she said she would, efficient in using her time whenever she is onsite. She also provides a detailed report after every appointment so there was no second guessing on what was accomplished. Talk about professionalism at its best! The rates are reasonable. Our family is grateful we came across Puddle Pools! The rates are reasonable. We are happy to support a local business. We hope the owners know how fortunate they are to have Kat on their team! Thank you for all your help, Kat!

Excellent company. Had a cloudy pool that no amount of shock or floc would clear. Turned out to be high phosphate levels. Couple days and the pool is sparkling clean. Highly recommend if you're having pool trouble.
