St. Catharines Pool Cleaning

For pool owners in the Niagara Region there are plenty of perks to having a swimming pool but cleaning and maintenance isn’t one! As easy as it is to enjoy a dip in a pool, keeping it clean is a much more complicated process than meets the eye. It doesn’t take much for pools to be overwhelmed with debris or start to go cloudy, so make sure that your swim space is always in great shape with a bit of help from a Puddle Pro. St. Catharines pool cleaning services treat water, ditch debris, check systems and makes sure that your pool is in great shape, no matter the time of year. 

In order to be effective, pool maintenance should be broken up into a multi-step approach that addresses the condition of your swim space inside and out. Anyone can skim out debris from water surfaces or toss in a chlorine puck every now and then but this isn’t enough to create and maintain a sanitary swim space. It is important to keep an eye on pool surfaces but if you want to prolong the lifespan of water systems, it is important to keep an eye on filtration and circulation systems, as well as return lines and more. 

Pool Care: Keeping Swimmers Safe & Pools Clean 

If a pool is full of debris or water is imbalanced, it not only looks terrible, it is a serious health risk to anyone who steps foot inside. Shocking the pool when you start to notice cloudiness is a no-brainer but this doesn’t mean that it is safe to swim in. When you want to keep your pool cleaner, breaking down the processes is the best way to get great results. 

Water Chemistry: Unlike a basic bathtub, pool water is not drained out and refilled at the first sign of contamination. Instead, water is treated with a chemical program that eliminates bacteria prevents algae growth and keeps water crystal clear. Many pool owners get caught up on grabbing basic test strips and checking chlorine levels but there is more to water balancing than just that. Sanitizers like chlorine or bromine are important but so are pH levels, alkalinity and calcium. 

Dealing With Debris: Debris is a serious issue in both outdoor and indoor swimming pools, but there is a lot more to deal with outside. When indoors you are likely dealing with simple things like bandages or the residue caused by body products, lotions and more. Outside, your pool is at the mercy of the elements and can quickly become overwhelmed with leaves, sticks, twigs, insects, seed pods, pollen and more. Lighter items should be skimmed off of water surfaces or will end up clogging up skimmer baskets or rotting and breaking apart where it will block filters. Heavier items will sink, resting against liners and causing permanent staining if not removed. A standard pool vacuum is not designed to reach into hard angles, navigate stairs or corners, so it will leave spots of bacteria and buildup behind. 

Keep Pool Filters Clean: The goal of any pool filter is to trap and hold smaller items while letting clean water pass through. Over time even small bits and pieces will create major clogs that make it harder for water to pass through. This means your systems have to work harder, using more energy and driving up utility bills. A cartridge filter should be removed, cleaned and replaced every 3-4 months while a sand filter should be emptied and refilled with fresh sand every 3-5 years.
