Scarborough Pool Closing

When outdoor temperatures begin to drop, pool closures should be a priority for property owners. It can be tough to say goodbye to warm weather and summer sun but neglecting seasonal pool care can lead to serious issues. Avoid unnecessary repairs and prevent a whole lot of damage by calling a professional for your Scarborough pool closing needs.

During the swim season, your pool likely gets weekly attention in the form of water balancing, scrubbing, vacuuming and inspections. As the weather gets colder, your swimming pool is likely not getting the same level of attention as when it is in high use. Even a bit of neglect can result in cloudy water, algae growth or other unpleasant issues and sitting idle over the course of an entire season only makes this worse! Expert seasonal care for your swim space can help to prevent damage, avoid unnecessary repairs and pave the way for a speedy pool opening in spring.

Why It Is Important to Close Your Pool

When winter makes up nearly half of the year, property owners want to make the most out of the summer season and there is no better way to do that than in a pool. If pools are not closed properly, when you want to open up in spring, homeowners will be met with cloudy or discoloured water, foul smells, tons of debris and algae.

What to Do With Pool Water: When your swim space is being used often, the chlorine level is likely being tested regularly but what about the rest of the time? As temperatures dip, pools are used less often and are not tested as often. Water is also prone to freezing in cold weather. When pool water freezes, it can expand by up to 9%. This might seem like a small number but it is enough to warp construction materials and even burst pipes. Reducing the water level prevents water from seeping into vulnerable areas where it can make plastic brittle or lead to bursting. If water is allowed to enter internal mechanisms, it can damage the motor, filter and pump, as well as return lines. Winterizing drain plugs is a great way to keep water out and help protect your pool for the winter.

Inspecting Structures: No two pools are built the same. When closing down a pool system, it is important to treat in-ground pools and above ground models according to their own unique needs. Dropping the water level is key in in-ground pools while adding a water bag can prevent freezing in an above ground pool.

Pool Equipment: When it comes to covering your water, winter covers are your best friend during cold weather. Installing a mesh cover in summer allows sunlight to pass through, helping to warm pool water. In winter, a mesh cover will create a damp, covered and warm environment, which is the perfect place for bacteria to thrive. Winter covers are solid and are designed to protect your pool water
