Toronto Pool Closing

Summer in Toronto can pass by in a flash, so it is important that residents and property owners take full advantage of the warm weather and sunshine — and there is no better place to do that than in a pool. With this in mind, it can be tough to admit when it is time to pack up and prepare for winter. It might not seem like it, but a proper Toronto pool closing is an art form. Each member of the Puddle Pools team is local to your area, so we understand the climate of the area and the needs of your system. When you want the best results, call a Puddle Pro!

When you want to protect your pool, a proper closing is key. It is very tempting to throw on winter covers and forget about your system until spring, but this comes with serious — and often expensive — consequences. After long periods of disuse, your swimming pool can show signs of algae growth, white mold, residue, staining and struggling circulation systems. A thorough closing not only helps to speed up your opening, but can prolong the lifespan of your pool equipment and various components, saving time, energy and stress in the long run.

Expert Pool Closing Service: A Multi-Step Approach

When the weather is nice, it is simple enough to run a skimmer over water surfaces or empty a skimmer basket in the name of pool cleaning, but this isn’t always enough! When you are getting ready for long periods of cold weather or disuse, keeping your swim space in great shape means creating a step-by-step process that addresses your surfaces, water condition and the inner-workings of your system.

Water Care: It is no secret that Canadian winters can be horribly cold. You might be able to hide out indoors, but your pool is left out to the elements. As your pool water freezes, it can cause serious issues. Standard pool systems often use plastic components, which can become brittle when frozen. In order to avoid these issues, it is important to drop the water level, empty return lines and inspect plumbing lines, to make sure there is no water left in the system. Not dropping water levels can also result in damaged liners for an inground pool, while above ground pools require speciality tools, such as water bags, to avoid freezing.

Inner Workings: A functional circulation system is important for the everyday running of your system, as well as an opening and closing. Depending on the style of your pool system, you may have a removable cartridge filter, or a sand filter to look after. In the case of removable components, it is important take these out, dry them, and store them safely until you are ready to put your pool to use again. Seemingly small steps like removing a hose from the skimmer can show wide improvement in the condition and functionality of your water feature.

An in-depth and experienced closing service can make a world of difference when it is time to open back up in spring. Without a proper closing, your pool opening can take a lot of time and a ton of energy, taking away from your enjoyment. Kick back and relax by calling a Puddle Pro for your closing and opening services.

Puddle Pool Services: The Best Results, Every Time

The city of Toronto is made up of many types and styles of property, which means a lot of trial and error for property owners. Closing down a backyard pool is much different from closing down a high traffic area, such as a hotel pool or communal pool around a recreation centre.

In order to keep up with the unique needs of your system, it is always best to call in a specialist with years of experience and ongoing training under their belt. It does not matter how much you already know about pools, there is always something new to learn. It might be the best way to maintain safety covers, how to clean diving boards, or the best way to reduce water levels, but there is always something exciting happening in the world of pool care.
