Waterloo Seasonal Pool Maintenance

For nearly half the year Ontario is a Winter Wonderland while the other half of the year is marked with high heats. As easy as it is to soak up the summer sunshine poolside, it takes a lot of work to get there. Whether you are closing down for the off-season or looking to make the most out of summer weather, you can’t have either without in-depth seasonal pool care. When warmer weather is in sight pool owners want to maximize their swim time while changing leaves signal that it is time to close down. Hiring expert Waterloo seasonal pool maintenance protects swim spaces from cold weather and helps you cannonball into the swim season. 

All it takes is one quick Internet search to find tons of tips for fall pool maintenance but not all of these are useful — and some of them can even cause damage. Instead of relying on amateur techniques from Pinterest, have an expert provide in-depth and reliable care, all at an affordable price. 

Seasonal Pool Care: What to Do & When 

Traditionally there are set dates for opening and closing outdoor swimming pools. Many pool owners choose to open their pool for the May long weekend and close swim spaces following the September long weekend. While this might work in theory, it isn’t always the best way to handle seasonal pool care. In order to keep up with the needs of your swim space as well as the elements, Puddle technicians have developed a schedule that works. 

Spring Pool Care: The ideal time to open your pool is when the average outdoor temperature reaches 21 degrees. When opening up after a long period of disuse you are likely going to pull back the pool cover to find swampy water and unpleasant smells. Even if you have your pool covered leaves and debris have a way of finding their way into water. Lighter items float along water surfaces and heavier items will sink to the bottom of the pool where they will cause permanent staining. Careful vacuuming can remove debris from even the most hard to reach areas while speciality brushes remove residue that has built up along water lines. Once systems are running smoothly it is time to balance water chemistry including the chlorine level, pH levels, total alkalinity and calcium. 

Fall Pool Care: Protecting your pool from the harsh winter should always be a top priority. When the fall season brings the average outdoor temperature to 15 degrees, it is time to shut your system down. Closing a pool for the fall/winter season means dropping water levels, winterizing drain plugs and applying a special application of pool chemicals that reduces the risk of freezing and algae growth. 

When changing seasons it is a good idea to check up on your pool filter, pumps and other pool equipment. Keeping your pool in great shape requires keeping all of its moving parts in good condition. Stagnant water is dirty water so your pool pump is a key component of maintaining clean water.
