Saanich Seasonal Pool Maintenance

No matter the season, your pool is in need of attention. It is easy to overlook the needs of your swim space when the weather gets cold, but it is tough to ignore when spring hits and pool owners want to start enjoying the sun. Proper seasonal care means protecting pools from cold weather but it also means making the most out of the spring and summer. Whether you want to open up, close down or maintain an off-season program, our Puddle technicians are here to help! Professional Saanich seasonal pool maintenance preps your pool for winter and sets the stage for spring, all at an affordable rate with excellent customer service.

Part of what sets our Puddle technicians apart from the competition is that our crews are local to your area. We know when to start the closing process and when to open back up again. Usually, the best time to open up in spring is when the average outdoor temperature reaches 21 degrees, while closures happen at 15 degrees. When you want the best results for your seasonal pool care, trust a local Puddle technician today.

Seasonal Pool Services: What to Know & What to Do

At the height of summer, pools are often being used multiple times per day. When swim spaces are being used regularly, water chemistry is a priority but as temperatures cool, they likely won’t get the same amount of attention. No matter the time of year, your pool is always left up to the elements. Professional treatments keep swimming pools in great shape throughout the year, protecting pool components, keeping swimmers safe, prolonging the lifespan of equipment and components, all while helping to avoid unnecessary repairs or premature replacements.

Pool Closing: A sudden cold snap can cause small amounts of water to freeze. It takes prolonged exposure to sub-zero temperatures for basins to freeze over completely but small amounts of water will freeze more readily. This means water inside return lines, around pumps and motors and other vulnerable areas can freeze over, causing plastic to become brittle and has the potential to burst pipes. Protecting pipes from winter weather means dropping the water level, winterizing drain plugs, installing winter covers and applying seasonal water treatments.

Pool Opening: If water levels were dropped during closing, it is important to restore them. This is simple and can be done with a simple garden hose but undoing months of sitting stagnant is hard work and a complicated process. A shock treatment is a great start to getting rid of cloudy or discoloured water, as well as germs that have built up over the cold season. From here, debris should be removed, skimmer baskets empty, the pump and filter should be inspected. Visual inspections for cartridge filters, return lines and pool pumps help to assess the condition of your system and pinpoint the need for repairs before they become disasters.

Off-Season Pool Programs: Full closures are not your only option when cold weather rolls around. Off-season pool care is a way to keep water systems in great shape throughout the year. This type of reduced pool program has a Puddle technician arrive to your home or commercial space on a bi-weekly basis. During this time, water is tested, chlorine levels and chemicals are balanced, debris is removed, and pool water is treated. This type of seasonal program keeps swim spaces in great shape and when warm weather comes around, all you have to do to enjoy your swimming pool is turn on your heater and dive in.
