Waterford Seasonal Pool Maintenance

Ontario is known for quick temperature shifts and unpredictable weather patterns. You might finish your day with sunshine only to wake up with snow. Whether you are prepping your closets for warm weather, or weatherproofing homes for rain and snow, your swimming pool is left to the elements. Cold weather can cause damage and failing to get your pool up and running in time for spring means missing out on the swim season. Calling Puddle for your Waterford seasonal pool maintenance means keeping your swim space in great shape all year long. 

Over the course of the swim season, pool maintenance is a part of everyday maintenance but as temperatures drop, it is easy to forget about water chemistry. Seasonal pool care is more than just throwing in a shock treatment now and then, or skimming out debris. Whether you are setting up for spring or closing down in fall, call a Puddle Pro for the best possible results. 

Seasonal Pool Care: What to do & When 

There is a lot of incentive to keep a pool clean during the height of summer but when a swim space is not being used regularly it is easy to let conditions spiral out of control. Preparing for the cold season is not as simple as throwing on a pool cover and taking it off again in spring. Openings and closings both require a multi-step approach that caters to interior water systems, as well as the surface area that you can see. 

Pool Opening: When spring hits, pool owners want to get their water systems up and running but it is important to make sure that you aren’t diving in before they are fully cleaned! Contaminated water looks awful but it is also a serious risk to health and safety for swimmers. Shock treatments clear cloudy water, reduce discolouration and eliminate algae growth. Water levels can be restored with a garden hose and debris removed with skimmers and speciality vacuums. 

Pool Closing: When summer gives way to fall and then winter, sub-zero temperatures make plastic brittle and frozen water expands inside pipes and return lines. Frozen water expands by up to 9% which might not seem like a lot but it is enough to cause pipes to burst, leading to the need for costly repairs and replacements. Dropping the water level so it falls below the skimmer lines and winterizing drain plugs prevents water from seeping into vulnerable areas where it can freeze and cause damage. This is an important part of closing in an inground pool while an above ground pool benefits from the installation of water bags to prevent damage. 

Off-Season Pool Programs: If closing your pool doesn’t sound appealing, Puddle technicians offer an off-season treatment program that keeps your swimming pool clean and flowing, all year long. Setting circulation systems up on a timer keeps water from freezing. Bi-weekly cleanings help to maintain the condition of pool water, as well as removing debris from basins and skimmer baskets to prevent staining. Off-season programs maintain pool water and pool equipment so when you want to open up in spring, all you have to do is turn on a heater.
