West Vancouver Pool Closing

Homes throughout West Vancouver have a lot of character and nothing adds character like a swimming pool. A clean and inviting outdoor swimming pool can help to enhance enjoyment and help property owners take in the beautiful views around them. During the summer, an outdoor pool is a great place to entertain, relax and even exercise but as warm weather begins to cool down, swim spaces are often not given the attention that they deserve. Instead of letting your pool sit on the back burner, call an expert to close your water system for the winter. Expert West Vancouver pool closing services protect pools over the winter and pave the way for an easier opening in spring.

The Vancouver Area might have mild winters but that does not mean that water isn’t at risk of freezing. Winter covers might help to keep some debris out of your pool water but these do not protect internal components and return lines from becoming brittle or bursting. When you want to winterize your pool for the season, just call a Puddle Pro for your seasonal care.

The Best Way to Winterize Your Pool: Closing Versus Off-Season Pool Programs

Throughout West Vancouver, pool owners have two options for winter care and maintenance: fully closing your water systems or choosing a fall/winter cleaning program.

How to Close Your Pool: For many pool owners, closing a pool means throwing on a winter cover and forgetting about it until spring. This might seem like the easiest way to shut your water system down for the season but it is not effective and ends up causing more trouble in the long run. If pools are left sitting stagnant over a prolonged period, you can expect algae growth, foul smells, cloudy or discoloured water, debris buildup and unexpected damage. Draining the water level in an in-ground pool to below the jets and skimmer lines prevents water from seeping in to vulnerable areas like pool pumps and plumbing lines. Swapping out mesh covers for solid winter covers is also a great way to reduce the risk of algae growth.

Fall & Winter Pool Treatments: Plenty of property owners are keen to hire a regularly scheduled crew to clean pools on a weekly basis but tend to fall-off during the fall and winter. Instead of closing water systems entirely, pool owners can choose a bi-weekly pool cleaning instead. A bi-weekly off-season program includes regular services for inground pools, as well as above ground models, includes balancing of water chemistry and checking of chlorine levels, emptying of the skimmer baskets, inspections of filters, and ensuring that your pool stays in good shape throughout the cold season. The major benefit of bi-weekly treatments is that when you want to open back up in spring, all you have to do is flip a switch.

Whether you are closing for the season or are sticking to a reduced schedule, it is important to understand what makes your pool tick. For example, every pool has a filter but how they operate is very different. When full or dirty, cartridge filters can be removed, cleaned and replaced, often every 3-4 months. A sand filter, on the other hand, is monitored by a pressure gauge and sand should be replaced every 5 years but this process involves a lot of heavy lifting.

Puddle Pool Services: Local Experts, Excellent Results

Anyone can pick up a test kit but winterizing a drain plug or trying to blow out the lines during a closure requires more technical skill. Missing a single step in the closing process has a ripple effect throughout your water system, causing unexpected damage and issues later on. Having a Puddle technician close or maintain your pool means excellent results at any time of year.

Local technicians understand how the climate and surrounding areas impact your pool and water system. Waiting too long to close or treat your pool can result in damage caused by freezing temperatures while closing too early means missing out on the last days of warm weather. When the average outdoor temperature reaches 15 degrees, it is time to think about closing your water systems for the season.

Each member of the Puddle team is highly trained and experienced, as well as fully insured to protect properties, as well as technicians and surrounding areas. When you want excellent results and peace of mind, Puddle Pool Services has got you covered.

Gabriel has by far given us the best pool service. Very punctual and respectful. We have been told many times that we have a troubled pool with algae growing between services. Ever since Puddle Pool Services started servicing us in our house in West Vancouver - we have a beautiful pool with no issues!
