When is the Best Time to Start a Pool Cleaning Program? 


Enjoying a swim space is easy but pool maintenance is no walk in the park. This year, instead of struggling to keep your pool clean, let an expert handle the dirty work for you! Cleaning your pool might seem simple from a distance but skimming, scrubbing, water balancing and getting rid of debris adds up. Before you know it, all of your leisure time is going to pool care. Kick back, relax and enjoy the sunshine without sacrificing pool condition by calling a local Puddle Pro. 

Anyone can skim out floating debris or flip the switch on a robotic cleaner to vacuum your pool but proper maintenance doesn’t stop there. Whether you have experience in pool care or are new to the world of swim spaces, keeping clean and balanced water is complicated. It takes technical skill, experience and an arsenal of chemicals and tools to keep a pool clean, but we’ll bring it all right to your front door! 

Schedule Your Swimming Pool Cleaning: What to Do & When 

Your swimming pool is more vulnerable than you think. Too much debris inside water systems will clog filters and put strain on equipment. A high rate of traffic or high heats will throw off water chemistry. The rate of plant growth in surrounding areas will also play a role in the condition of your pool. The secret to a clean and welcoming swim space is consistency. 

There is never a bad time to start a regular maintenance program for your pool but it is always better to book your services before the busy season. It is a good idea to schedule your routine cleaning program at the same time as your pool opening. The best time to open your pool for the season is when the average outdoor temperature reaches 21℃/70℉. 

Once open, swimming pools should be cleaned weekly during the spring and summer months and bi-weekly during the off-season. 

Routine Pool Care The needs of your swim space and water systems will change based on a variety of factors, including: indoor/outdoor models, rate of use, surrounding areas, size, style and condition of pool. The average residential pool should be cleaned once per week while a commercial space can benefit from multiple cleanings over the course of a week. 

When choosing Puddle for your routine pool cleanings technicians will arrive on-scene in recognizable Puddle mobiles every week. A Puddle Pro removes debris, tests and balances pool chemicals, removes residue, empties skimmer baskets and tests the filter system to make sure that everything is working as it should be. 

Seasonal Pool Care When the seasons change your pool will need more attention. This can mean closing down in fall or opening up again in spring. After months of sitting idle your pool is likely full of algae, debris and even insects or rodents. Just shocking the pool isn’t enough to restore condition! Get your pool cleaner, faster by ditching the basic testing kit and having an expert handle your opening instead. 

How Important Is Water Chemistry in Pools? 

Swampy water doesn’t just look awful, it can be a serious risk to health and safety. Stepping foot into contaminated water can result in recreational water illnesses like skin irritations, ear infections, eye infections and even digestive issues. A shock treatment might help to clear away some cloudiness but just because water looks clear doesn’t mean that it is safe or usable. 

It is easy to visit a pool supply store to stock up on test strips and chemicals but putting them to use takes technical skill. Puddle technicians use top industry tools to test and balance water chemistry. Chlorine levels often take centre stage when balancing pool water but it is important to consider pH levels, total alkalinity and calcium. 

A busy schedule can mean missing out on a chemical treatment or a long vacation can throw water balance off completely. Having an expert visit your swimming pool regularly means it is being cared for even while you are away.
