Stoney Creek Pool Opening

After a long winter, Stoney Creek residents want to make the most out of summer and that means enjoying pools and hot tubs. Taking a swim is a great way to beat the heat while kicking back in a hot tub is great on a chilly evening. When you want to make the most out of summer, call a Puddle expert for your Stoney Creek pool opening.

Throughout Ontario, pool systems do not see much action throughout the fall and winter seasons and this means that they will need a sprucing up before they are ready to use again. When you want to open your pool for the season, it is important to ensure that water is clear, circulation systems are running smoothly and structures are in great shape.

Spring Pool Care: What to Do Before Opening Your Pool

The month of may is the time for spring cleaning, but it is also an ideal time to open a pool. As soon as the average temperature is 21 degrees or over, it is safe to open your water system. After months of sitting idle, you will need to do more than vacuum the pool bottom and apply a shock treatment to get a great result. Instead of just looking awful, cloudy pool water or algae growth is a serious health risk, so don’t take any chances!

Whether you are opening a swim space around a community centre or in a backyard, most pools will experience the same issues over the course of the winter. An amateur or DIY approach to a pool opening often misses out on necessary steps that can have a big impact on the overall condition and function of your water system and its components, as well as the safety of swimmers.

During the warm seasons, pool maintenance often focuses on pool water alone. If you want to get great results, it is important to focus on pool equipment, structures and the internal component that keep your filtration system running.

Filtration Systems: After months of sitting idle, your skimmer baskets are likely full of dirt, build up and debris. If filters are packed with clutter, water has a harder time passing through, putting strain on systems. When filters, pumps and motors have to work harder, it will wear down on mechanisms faster, leading to the need for premature repairs and replacements. Without a functional circulation system, chemicals cannot be spread around the water, leaving pockets of bacteria inside the system. When dealing with a sand filter, it is important to ensure that your sand doesn’t need to be changed or, if you use a pool filter cartridge, that it doesn’t need to be changed.

Pool Equipment: There are plenty of reasons that equipment should be inspected before your pool is open for business. During a closing, it is common to install a winter cover, drop the water level, disconnect pool heaters and winterize drain plugs. During an opening, it is important to restore dropped water lines, open drains and ensure that any components that were removed, are reinstalled.

Pool Water: When managing water systems, a test kit can point out obvious issues with chlorine. Having water tested by a professional can help to identify important but commonly overlooked measurements, like pH levels, alkalinity and total chlorination.
