The Villages Seasonal Pool Maintenance

Unlike other parts of the US, Florida is not known for being a winter wonderland. Even in a traditionally warm climate, seasons do change and so do the needs of your pool. Just because there is not a foot of snow on the ground doesn’t mean that your pool is not at risk of damage over winter. From closing down during cold weather or long periods of absence, or opening up for the spring, Puddle provides The Villages seasonal pool maintenance that can’t be beat.

Swimming pools are great additions to any property, but they are a lot of work! In addition to the standard scrubbing, skimming and chemical balancing as seasons change, there are extra steps needed to protect pools from the elements. Without seasonal pool care, water systems are at risk of breakage and unexpected damage caused by the elements. Calling a professional for your maintenance means great results, no matter the time of year.

Seasonal Pool Care: What to Do & When

When the swim season is in full swing, adding pool chemicals and removing debris are a part of everyday practices. When temperatures take a dip, your pool is likely not getting the same amount of attention. For many Florida residents, winter is also the time to take a prolonged vacation! No one wants to come back after a long trip, only to remove the cover and find a swamp underneath. When you want to make the most out of the spring season, and protect pools from unexpected damage, added seasonal practices are key.

Pool Closing: When fall comes around, it is time to think about closing your pool. In Florida, homeowners might opt to leave their pools open all year round, but this comes with the added costs of running heaters during cold weather. If you choose to close your pool, it is important to treat water systems from top to bottom, even dropping water levels to below the skimmer opening. Winterizing plugs prevents water from seeping into vulnerable areas and freezing, where it will make plastic brittle and has the potential to burst pipes. This is also the ideal time to swap out mesh summer covers for solid winter ones. When storing your pool cover, make sure that it is fully dried and stored in a cool space, away from prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.

Pool Opening: If water levels were dropped on closing, they can be easily refilled with a simple garden hose but there is more to an opening than just having to add water. After a long period of sitting idle, the water chemistry in your pool will be off. Test strips will point out some issues but these can’t tell you how to restore balance. Ditch the test kit and have an expert monitor your chlorine level, pH level, calcium, alkalinity and more. Even with safety covers, debris has a way of sneaking inside water systems. Anyone can vacuum the pool with an automatic cleaner but these are not meant to reach into hard angles, corners or around stairs.

In addition to caring for pool water, it is important to inspect mechanisms and components during both opening and closings. Having a trained eye inspect return lines, pumps, motors and even liners can help to identify problems areas while they are small and repairable.

Puddle Pool Services: Great Results At Any Time of Year

It might be tempting for pool owners to take care and maintenance into their own hands but a DIY approach can have a negative effect that spreads throughout your entire water system. Instead of struggling to keep up with pool cleaning and water balancing, call an expert to get the best results for your swim space.
Getting to know the ins and outs of a pool system can take years of trial and error. The needs of an in-ground swim space are different from an above ground pool in the same way that there is a big difference between a chlorine pool and salt water model. Instead of spending your evenings and weekends learning how to navigate the needs of your pool, have a Puddle Pro handle it for you.

Each member of the Puddle team is local to your area and fully insured to provide peace of mind to clients. When you want great results for your pool and hot tub, just call a Puddle technician to book your seasonal pool treatments.
