Scarborough Seasonal Pool Maintenance

The needs of your swimming pool will change throughout the year and with that, so will your cleaning and maintenance needs. Keeping up with the needs of your pool can feel overwhelming but falling behind can result in health risks, damage and increased running costs. In order to keep your water system in great shape all year long, call a Puddle technician for your Scarborough seasonal pool maintenance needs.

Expert seasonal pool care cannot only improve the look of your pool, it can help to avoid damage, as well as health risks. When the temperature drops, it is tempting to throw on the pool cover and leave it until spring. Doing this will make it incredibly difficult to open up again in spring and can contribute to unnecessary damage throughout the fall season and into winter. Whether you want to close your pool for fall or open up in spring, one call to a Puddle pro gets the best results for your water system.

Seasonal Pool Service: How and When to Open Your Pool and Close it Down

As cold weather gives way to spring, your pool will become more demanding. In order to keep your system running smoothly it is important to fully understand the needs of your swimming pool at any time of year.

Fall Pool Care: When the average outdoor temperature reaches 15 degrees, it is time to close your pool. Waiting longer than this can result in unexpected cold snaps, freezing water and cause damage to structures, liners and internal components. When water freezes, it expands up to 9% and makes plastic brittle. This expansion can cause pipes to burst, so it is key to ensure that water cannot reach vulnerable areas. Dropping the water level in an in-ground pool can prevent expansion while installing a water bag can prevent freezing in an above ground pool.

Spring Pool Care: As warm weather comes around pool owners are keen to get their systems up and running. The May long weekend is the standard time to open a pool in Ontario, but it is possible to open as soon as average temperatures reach 21 degrees. After months of disuse, your pool water will likely need a full overhaul. This means applying algaecides where necessary, along with inspecting and balancing chlorine levels, the pH level, total alkalinity and more.

In the case of both opening and closing, it is important to inspect pool equipment, as well as the circulation system, clean your pool filter and apply pool chemicals to create a sanitary swim space.
