Vancouver Pool Closing

Fall in the Greater Vancouver Area is a time for watching the leaves change, soaking up the last of the warm weather and preparing for the holidays. Pool care is noticeably not on this list! It is easy to overlook the needs of your swimming pool when the weather begins to cool down. Forgetting to close down your water systems can result in serious and costly damage. Professional Vancouver pool closing services protect pools throughout the winter season or over long periods of disuse.

An improper closing or failing to winterize your pool correctly can mean pulling back pool covers in spring to find green water, algae growth, debris and one huge headache. If pool water is allowed to freeze inside internal systems, you can expect brittle plastic, burst pipes and other unexpected damage. Calling a Puddle technician for your fall pool care can help to safely close swim spaces for the season or book a reduced fall/winter cleaning schedule for the season.

Should You Close Your Pool?

When the average temperature outside reaches 15 degrees, it is the best time to start thinking about next steps for your pool system. During this period, it is possible for cold snaps to take a toll on the internal components that keep your water systems running smoothly. Because winters in Vancouver are mild, property owners have a choice between closing their swimming pools entirely or switching over to a lower frequency fall cleaning program.

Pool Closings: If you choose to close pools down for winter, it is important to know that the process doesn’t happen in an afternoon but takes time and patience. More than throwing on winter covers and calling it a day, in-depth closures drop water levels, inspect surfaces, apply winterizing chemicals, winterize drain plugs and blows out return lines to ensure there is no water left behind to freeze and cause damage. In an above ground pool, installing an air or water bag can help to prevent freezing.

Fall Cleaning Schedules: During the summer months pool cleanings are often carried out on a weekly basis. As temperatures drop, it is possible to reduce the frequency of services to keep your pool in great shape, even when it is not being used. This means a Puddle technician will service your pool bi-weekly to maintain water chemistry and chlorine levels, empty skimmer baskets and inspect internal components like pool pumps and plumbing lines. During this time, circulation systems can be put on a daily timer to prevent freezing. The main advantages of a fall pool program are that when you want to open up again in spring, all you have to do is turn on the heater and hop right in.

In addition to water care and structural inspections, it is important to monitor pool filters at any time of year. Cartridge filters can be removed, cleaned and reinstalled while sand filters should be replaced every 5 years or so.
