Swimming pools are a hot ticket item during warmer months but the majority of them won’t be used alongside cooler temperatures. It can be difficult to pry ourselves away from the fun of sunshine and summer but proper closing procedures are key to maintaining the condition of your water feature.

Our team of Puddle Pool Specialists can help to clean and prep pools of any size, shape or style. From residential spaces to hotel pools and recreation centres, there is nothing that our team of experts can’t handle.
Seasonal Pool Care: When, Why and How?
The logistics of your seasonal pool maintenance will depend on a few varying factors, such as whether you are dealing with an above ground or in-ground pool, whether you water feature is outside or indoors and a variety of other elements. Just because you can pull back the cover on your pool does not mean that it is ready for you to jump into.
What Happens Over Winter? When your pool is closed during winter months, it is not being treated for bacteria or unwanted growth. As swimming season comes back around, it is easy to want to take a dive but don’t be surprised if you pull back the pool cover to find unexpected items inside. Bits of debris and even algae are a reality for pool owners. Chances are that water levels were lowered during closing so in addition to refilling water, scrubbing sides and surrounding areas is a must, along with proper chemical treatments. Puddle Pool Services are able to provide a proper pool opening every time.
What is the Right Way to Shut Down After Summer? As warm weather winds down, it can be difficult to say goodbye to pool and spa usage. Prepping your pool for the winter months means treated structures, as well as the water itself. It is no secret that water freezes in winter, causing surrounding materials and mechanisms to expand and contract. Dropping water levels is a must. Shock treatments of chemicals and sanitizer can help to eliminate any outstanding bacteria before closing down.
Winterizing Pool Equipment: The main structure of your pool is not the only thing that needs attention. Prepping your pool for winter means accounting for unforeseen issues as well. Mesh covers, for example, allow light to pass through, reaching water. A bright, warm environment is perfect for algae to thrive. Winter covers provide a closed environment, designed to keep bacteria at bay.
