Whistler Pool Closing

Whistler is known for beautiful scenery and a tons of outdoor activity, particularly during the ski season. As soon as the weather starts to get cold you might be waxing your snowboard or pulling out the ski poles but what about your pool? Closing your pool for the winter isn’t just good practice, it helps to avoid unnecessary damage, expensive repairs and makes it easier to open back up again in spring. Local Puddle technicians provide Whistler pool closing services that protect pools, prevent damage and won’t break the bank! 

You might be eager to open your pool in spring but without a proper closing, this can be a painful process. As temperatures drop, pools and hot tubs are at risk. Instead of throwing on a winter cover and hoping for a best-case scenario, Puddle uses a multi-step approach to protect pools inside and out. 

Fall Pool Care: What to Do & When 

Whether you are dealing with an inground pool or an above ground model, freezing temperatures are always bad news. Many pool owners decide to close their swim space for the season following the September long weekend. This might be great for your schedule but it isn’t the optimal timeframe for your pool. Closing too early can mean missing out on the last swimmable days of the season and warm weather encourages algae growth. Waiting too long to close can result in burst plumbing lines, broken equipment and other unexpected damage. 

So, when is the best time to close your pool? The optimal time to shut down for the season is when the average outdoor temperatures reaches 15 degrees. In order to get the best results during a closing, it is important to break the process down into multiple steps that treat water systems inside and out. 

Remove Debris: If debris is allowed to sit in water over prolonged periods of time it will rot and start to break down. This means smaller, harder to remove bits and pieces, as well as bacteria and algae. It is important to skim out floating items, vacuum up sunken debris and check filters and skimmer baskets for anything that might be left behind. 

Drop Water Levels: When in use, pool water needs to be able to run through plumbing and return lines, as well as internal components like pumps. Sub-zero temperatures make plastic brittle and cause water to freeze. Frozen water expands up to 9% and that is enough to cause pipes to burst. By dropping water levels, winterizing drain plugs and flushing return lines, you avoid water damage, expensive replacements and worst-case scenarios. 

Remove Detachable Equipment: Because cold weather can damage plastic, it is a good idea to remove detachable components wherever possible. By drying and storing these for the off-season, you avoid damage and the need for expensive replacement parts. 

Apply Winter Chemicals: Water chemistry is everything during the summer months but as swimming pools are used less often, it becomes less of a priority. Without a proper application of winter chemicals, it won’t take long for your pool to start looking like a swamp. A specialized combination of chemicals keeps any remaining water from freezing and prevents algae growth.
