Squamish Pool Closing

Squamish is an ideal mountain town with tons of outdoor activities to keep residents busy all year long. As summer fades into fall, you might be quick to hang up your swim suit and reach for a snowboard instead but your pool shouldn’t be left behind! Outdoor pools are up against the elements all year long and this means they are vulnerable to freezing and the damage that it causes. Professional Squamish pool closing services protect your swim space throughout the winter and make it easier to open back up again in spring.

There is no set date to close your pool for the winter season but when the average outdoor temperature reaches 15 degrees it is time to call in a Puddle Pro. At this point, your swimming pool likely isn’t being used regularly and cold snaps can occur at any time. When you want to keep your swim space running smoothly have an expert close your pool properly!

How to Close Your Pool For Winter

For many pool owners, closing a system down for the off-season is as simple as throwing on winter covers and hoping for the best. It is easy to cover a swim space and forget about it but all this does is put your pool issues off for a while. Without a proper closure, uncovering your swimming pool in spring will leave owners overrun with debris and build up, along with algae growth and brittle or damaged plastic and plumbing.

A hot tub can stay full and running throughout the winter but a swimming pool is a different story all together. Sub-zero temperatures make plastic brittle and frozen pool water expands in pipes, causing them to burst. Dropping the water level in an inground pool and winterizing drain plugs protects internal systems from freezing. It is also a good idea to remove detachable components to be dried and stored for winter.

Draining the water from a pool is not the same as draining water from a bathtub. You can’t just pull the plug on a swimming pool! Improper draining of both above ground pools and inground models should be done carefully to avoid drowned lawns, flooding structures, water damage, rot and mold. It is also important to inspect return lines, pool pumps and filters to ensure that everything is in good shape before closing down.

In summer, pool owners are quick to check up on chlorine levels but it is easy to overlook winterizing chemicals. These speciality chemical treatments are designed to reduce the risk of algae growth, as well as preventing freezing. Additional treatments make it easer to open your pool in spring, allowing pool owners to make the most out of the swim season.

A basic test kit might be enough to point out issues with chemical imbalances but they can’t empty your skimmer baskets or assess the condition of your sand filter or cartridge filters. When you want the best results, call a Puddle Pro to set your pool up for a successful swim season.
